"Procurement Grant" Resources

"Competitive Procurement Grant" Resources

Sponsors who have either expended or obligated, or both, the entire amount of their initial noncompetitive Oregon Farm-to-School procurement grant award are eligible to apply for Competitive Procurement Funds. There is no due date for applications. Instead, we will accept and process applications until all available funds have been awarded.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Legislative budget cuts, the funding for the Competitive Procurement Grant has been reduced from $1,744,944 to $450,000. The "first round" of the competitive procurement grant has closed. We will be posting an RFA for another round very soon. We have a balance of $164,260.17 available so far for this next round. We will have more funds available during subsequent rounds of reallocation.

  • Grant Submission: An electronic version of the complete Application must be submitted to Noemi Rios, Procurement and Contract Specialist, at Noemi.Rios@ode.state.or.us, using ODE's secure file transfer system.
