COMMUNITY FOOD PROJECTS GRANTS  WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR 2005

The Community Food Projects (CFP) Competitive Grants Program provides
the major funding source for community-based food and agriculture
projects in the U.S. Approximately $4.6 million in funds will be
available in 2005.  The Request for Applications is expected to be
released in late January or early February, with proposals due in April.

The CFP Program supports projects that:

* Help meet the food needs of low-income people,
* Increase the self-reliance of communities in providing for their own
food needs, and
* Promote comprehensive responses to local food, farm, and nutrition
issues.

The 2004 version of the Request for Applications (RFA) is still
available at:
http://www.csrees.usda.gov/funding/rfas/04_community_foods.html.
The only major change expected for 2005 is a return to the hard-copy
proposal submission process, rather than the electronic submission
process that was introduced in 2004.
