Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) Grants Webinar
The Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) Grant Program supports projects to increase the purchase of fruits and vegetables among low-income consumers participating in SNAP by providing incentives at the point of purchase. The next FINI RFA is expected to publish in October 2017. Join the FMI webinar on September 6 and learn more about FINI grants from Daniel Cline, a Program Analyst for USDA Food and Nutrition Service.
Established by the 2014 Farm Bill, FINI has provided over $65 million in grants to 90 projects across the country since FY13. FINI connects stakeholders from distinct parts of the food system and fosters partnerships to improve the nutrition and health status of lower-income households.
There are three categories of projects: (1) FINI Pilot Projects (awards not to exceed a total of $100,000 over one year); (2) Multi-year, community-based FINI Projects (awards not to exceed a total of $500,000 over no more than four years); and (3) Multi-year, FINI Large-Scale Projects (awards of $500,000 or more over no more than four years). The next FINI RFA is expected to publish in October 2017.
The most recent round of grants, FY17, were announced August 7th, which includes $16.8 million for 32 grant projects.
