COMMUNITY FOOD PROJECTS GRANTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR 2006

IMPORTANT CHANGE IN APPLICATION PROCESS

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 granted in 2006. The
Request for Applications (RFA) was released on January 12.

There is an important change in the application process this year. Brief
letters of intent will be due on February 13. These will be reviewed, and
applicants with relevant project outlines will be asked to submit a full
proposal by April 13. See the RFA and the CFSC website (soon) for more
information.

Another change this year is that planning projects of $10,000-25,000 are
being given new emphasis.  Planning projects assess food security needs and
plan for long-term solutions to help ensure food security in communities.

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,
-Promote comprehensive responses to local food, farm, and nutrition issues,
and
-Meet specific state, local, or neighborhood food and agriculture needs for
infrastructure improvement and development, long-term planning, or the
creation of innovative marketing activities that mutually benefit
agricultural producers and low-income consumers.

The 2006 Request for Applications (RFA) is available at:
