USDA presents FY 2023 Team Nutrition Grant Supporting Nutrition Education for School-Aged Children
A request for applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2023 Team Nutrition Grant Supporting Nutrition Education for School-Aged Children is now available on Grants.gov. USDA Food and Nutrition Service expects to award approximately $10 million in total funding (up to $1,000,000 per state agency or school food authority (SFA) through a competitive award process for use over a three-year grant period). Should additional funds become available, USDA may increase the grant ceiling and/or award grants to more states.
The FY 2023 Team Nutrition Grant Supporting Nutrition Education for School-Aged Children will support state agencies and SFAs in implementing the adoption of healthy eating patterns by school-aged children (grades pre-K through 12) and their families through the coordination and implementation of MyPlate nutrition education connected to the nutritious meals and snacks offered through USDA child nutrition programs.
State agency and SFA grantees will provide direct nutrition education to students, parents/caregivers, and other school stakeholders, and build capacity for revitalizing local school wellness policies, to improve the consumption of nutritious foods and beverages offered through USDA child nutrition programs.
