US: $41 million for healthy food access projects now available

Newly renamed, the former Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentives Program (FINI) – now the Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentive Program (GusNIP) – helps low-income families to access more fresh fruits and vegetables. The program, which is still jointly administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) and Food and Nutrition Service, recently announced the availability of $41 million in funds for fiscal year (FY) 2019 projects. This is the first round of funding being offered since passage of the 2018 Farm Bill.
