The NEHA-FDA Retail Flexible Funding Model Grant Program webpage has been updated!
New guidance has been added to the web page, designed to simplify the NEHA-FDA RFFM grant program application process, including grant requirements, important deadlines, eligibility tracks, and types of grants offered. The web page also highlights 4 actions that can be taken right now to start preparing a successful application for this fall. These actions are:
- Enrollment in the Retail Program Standards
- Determining your eligibility, and choosing an application track that meets the capacity needs and Retail Program Standards goals of your jurisdiction
- Understanding the two types of base grants, and the four optional add-on grants
- Completing a Comprehensive Strategic Improvement Plan (CSIP), to be attached to your base grant application
Each action will provide retail food regulatory agencies with clear, step-by-step guidance for successfully navigating the NEHA-FDA RFFM grant program and preparing each individual component of the application.
The NEHA-FDA RFFM Grant Program offers two base grants, “Development” and “Maintenance & Advancement,” as well as four optional add-ons, including “Mentorship;” “Training/Staff Development and Program Standards Engagement;” “Special Projects;” and “Capacity Building.” Please keep in mind, both the Maintenance and Advancement base grant and the Capacity Building optional add-on grant are 3-year grants that will ONLY be available for application in this year (fall of 2021).
