FY 2022 NSLP Equipment Assistance Grants for School Food Authorities

The purpose of the Equipment Assistance Grants is to distribute $30 million provided by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022, (PL 117-103), to state agencies to competitively award Equipment Assistance Grants to eligible school food authorities (SFAs) participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The Equipment Assistance Grants will be especially effective in supporting SFAs, which have been experiencing supply chain disruptions resulting from the COVID-19 public health emergency and which have reported challenges in operating school food service. In addition, timely award of these Equipment Assistance Grants will benefit recipient SFAs by enabling them to meet equipment needs associated with a return to standard operating procedures.

Refer to memorandum SP14-2022 for information on the $30 million provided by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022, (PL 117-103), that FNS will distribute to state agencies to competitively award equipment assistance grants to eligible SFAs participating in the NSLP. These grants are not published on Grants.gov. The memorandum also provides guidance on the specific terms and conditions, period of performance, timelines, funding goals, and reporting requirements for these grants.
