RFP for Food Access Grant from The Reinvestment Fund
The Reinvestment Fund (TRF) invites proposals from food related non-profit organizations for grants to support innovative solutions to food access problems within Pennsylvania. Grants of up to $95,000 will be awarded to non-profit organizations for predevelopment and programmatic activities for projects that will extend access to healthy food choices for more Pennsylvanians. TRF extends this invitation with support from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Eligible applicants must comply with all standards set forth in this document as well as further requirements determined by TRF as necessary. TRF retains sole discretion with respect to the approval or disapproval of any proposal.
The goals of this program are to assist food-based non-profits which undertake programs and projects that will expand underserved Pennsylvania residents’ access to healthy food choices; create and preserve quality jobs; and to foster an environment that supports the development of community based food cooperatives.
Food Access grants are intended to support the Pennsylvania-based efforts of many different types of non-profit organizations, including community-based organizations, statewide or national advocacy groups, existing and start-up food cooperative companies, food banks, and food access based organizations. Applicants may submit only one proposal.
Eligible applicants will have projects located in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Priority will be given to projects which are located in a low or moderate income community or projects whose primary impact is a low or moderate income community (e.g. Organization’s headquarters are in Center City, Philadelphia but the community the organization’s project will impact is in a North Philadelphia neighborhood where the AMI is 80%).
Grant Disbursement and Uses:
Grants awards of up to $95,000 will be made, with a limit of one grant per recipient and project. The grant amount will be determined by TRF, taking into account the applicant’s project need, available funds, and other criteria. The most competitive grant proposals will fall below the maximum and leverage other sources of funding.
