Here is an exciting opportunity with CalFresh/SNAP healthy food incentives for organizations in California. As you may know, last week, the California Office of Farm to Fork released its Request for Proposals (RFP) for the California Nutrition Incentive Program (CNIP), designed as a match to the federal Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) grant program.
In the next month, the Ecology Center plans to submit a large application on behalf of the the statewide Market Match program, in order to access the state’s CNIP funds and join CDFA’s FINI proposal this fall. They plan to include their existing network of partners, as well as funding to expand the program’s reach through new partner and market expansion. If selected by CDFA, the Ecology Center will invite applications for new Market Match partners in the beginning of 2017!
If you are interested in bringing Market Match to your network, association, or market — the Ecology Center wants to hear from you!
