Child Nutrition Programs (CNP) Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Training Grant

This is an announcement of the availability of funds for one new cooperative agreement for a 2-year time-frame (September 2017 – August 2019) with an accredited public or private Academic Institute of Higher Learning, a Research, or Training Institution (i.e. entity that provides training such as a corporation or non-profit). The training tools, resources, or programs developed under this grant should support the activities of those who administer CACFP and/or improve service delivery that ultimately benefits program participants. Apply by July 20, 2017.

More information:

The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) expects to fund a competitive cooperative agreement award of approximately $3 million in Fiscal Year 2017 to a
qualified applicant to develop, design, promote, conduct, and evaluate a training initiative that will equip State agencies administering CACFP with the knowledge and skills necessary to then effectively train and provide technical assistance on key topics to CACFP operators (including CACFP institutions such as sponsoring organizations and/or independent centers as well as CACFP facilities including child care centers and day care homes). This award is contingent upon the availability of funds. FNS may fund this project, in whole or in part, without further competition, in this or subsequent fiscal years.

The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) administers 15 Federal nutrition assistance programs of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The mission of FNS is to reduce hunger and food insecurity in partnership with cooperating organizations by providing children and needy people access to food, a healthful diet, and nutrition education in a manner that supports American agriculture and inspires public confidence. Among the programs that FNS administers are the Child Nutrition Programs (CNP), including the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP), the Special Milk Program (SMP), and the Farm to School Program. Administered by State agencies, each of these programs helps to fight hunger and obesity by reimbursing organizations such as schools, child care centers, and after-school programs for providing healthy meals to children.
