Request for Proposals for Native Agriculture & Food Systems Initiative Grants
Proposals due December 16th, 2011 by 5 p.m. Mountain Time (3 p.m. Alaska Time)
First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) is now accepting proposals for the Native American food security grant project under its Native Agriculture & Food Systems Initiative (NAFSI).
Native American-controlled, nonprofit 501(c)(3), tribal organizations designated as §7871 under the Internal Revenue Code, or community-based groups such as community garden projects, food banks and/or food pantries that serve Native communities are eligible to apply. Priority will be given to projects aimed at increasing the availability of healthy, locally-produced foods in Native communities and/or programs that create systemic change by increasing community control of local food systems.
