Grant Description
Cooperative agreements to USA and Territories nonprofit organizations, tribal entities, government agencies, and institutions of higher education to provide assistance related to a nutrition-based program. Funding is intended to offer training, technical assistance, evaluation, and informational support services to potential applicants, nutrition incentive projects, produce prescription projects, and to GusNIP overall.

Applications are requested for Nutrition Incentive Program Training, Technical Assistance, Evaluation, and Information Centers Cooperative Agreements. NTAE Centers offer training, technical assistance, evaluation, and informational support services to potential applicants, nutrition incentive projects, produce prescription projects, and to GusNIP as a whole. NTAE Centers develop and provide services related to grants under the Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program (GusNIP) Nutrition Incentive Program (NI) and Produce Prescription Program (PPR), including offering incentive program training and technical assistance to applicants and grantees to the extent practicable. 

NIFA encourages pursuing these goals through the application of Traditional Ecological Knowledge in collaboration and consultation with Tribal Nations and Indigenous Peoples if consistent with the above goals and priorities. Furthermore, NIFA also encourages applicants to highlight proposed project plans that emphasize food and nutrition security, nutritional quality, environmental stewardship (e.g., food loss and waste, climate), culturally sensitive food and/or food practices, and economic and social equity.
