The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), an agency of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is inviting applicants for Food Safety Outreach Competitive Grants Program to support projects that encourage those from local communities, community based- and non-governmental organizations, universities, extension and state and federal agencies to develop and implement food safety outreach programs that facilitate the integration of Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) food safety guidelines into a variety of agricultural production and processing systems, including conventional, sustainable, and organic systems, among others.
- Pilot Projects will support the development and implementation of new and potentially high risk, high-impact food safety education and outreach programs in local communities that address the needs of small, specialized audiences from among the various target groups.
- Community Outreach Projects will support the growth and expansion of already-existing food safety education and outreach programs that are currently offered in local communities.
- Multistate Education and Training Projects will support the development and implementation of multi-county, state-wide, or multi-state food safety education and outreach programs where there are common food safety concerns, but the counties and states are not necessarily located within the same regions.
