CDFA ACCEPTING PROPOSALS TO EXPAND NUTRITION BENEFITS TO WIC FARMERS' MARKET AND SENIOR FARMERS' MARKET PROGRAMS

Espa駉l

SACRAMENTO ?December 4, 2019 ?The California Department of Food and Agriculture抯 Office of Farm to Fork is currently accepting proposals from qualified entities to distribute California Nutrition Incentive Program (CNIP) incentives to shoppers utilizing benefits at Certified Farmers?Markets, farm stands, and community supported agriculture programs throughout California. CNIP is expanding to include the Farmers?Market Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) and the Senior Farmers?Market Nutrition Program. 

CNIP began in 2017. For every nutrition benefit dollar spent, the program offers eligible shoppers an additional incentive to spend on California-grown fruits and vegetables, within set parameters.
 
CDFA is now seeking project proposals. Projects that reach underserved populations will be prioritized. This is a competitive process.

Applications must be submitted by email to cafarmtofork@cdfa.ca.gov no later than 5 p.m. PST, Friday, January 31, 2020. Visit https://cafarmtofork.cdfa.ca.gov/cnip_2019Expansion.html for more information on the grant program, including the Request for Proposals, timeline and application criteria.
