CA Dept. of Food and Agriculture - CA Nutrition Incentive Program - CalFresh. Deadline: 5/16/22
2022 California Nutrition Incentive Program - CalFresh
CDFA is seeking project proposals from non-profits, certified farmers' markets and other direct-marketing farmers (CSAs and farm stands), and small retail businesses to distribute nutrition incentives to CalFresh (SNAP) shoppers.
CalFresh shoppers should be able to receive the incentive at the time of purchase. Typically shoppers for every CalFresh dollar they spend, shoppers receive an additional dollar (nutrition incentive) that can be spent on California-grown fruits and vegetables.
Projects that reach underserved populations, particularly communities where a large proportion of the population is eligible for CalFresh and communities with high rates of diet-related disease, will be prioritized.
The intent of this RFP is to select project proposals to combine into a unified state application for CDFA submission to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program. Funding is contingent upon CDFA receiving a federal nutrition incentive grant award.
