The Department invites eligible applicants to apply for funding through the SNAP-Ed Community Growers Grant Program.
Community-led growing spaces are collaborative projects on shared open space that produce healthy and affordable fresh fruits and vegetables for local community consumption. This funding aims to support garden-based nutrition education and food production in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) eligible communities to increase the production and consumption of healthy and fresh food.
An informational webinar to discuss the program was held on Monday, November 6 from 12pm-1pm. A recording is available here.
Applications for funding must be submitted via the Grants Gateway to be considered for funding by December 15, 2023, at 4:00 p.m. Faxed, mailed, or e-mailed applications will not be accepted.
