Oregon Farm to CNP Competitive Reimbursement Grant

The Competitive Reimbursement Grant is part of the Farm to CNP Program and is intended to provide eligible Farm to CNP grantees with additional funding above their original Farm to CNP award amount. These funds are derived from a reallocation process in which the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) redistributes unspent Farm to CNP award dollars from grantees that have determined they are unable to exhaust their original awards.

To be eligible for these funds, applicants must be either a School District, a provider of center-based programs for children in the Child and Adult Care Food Program, or be an entity that provides meals through the Summer Food Service Program. In addition, applicants must have been awarded a Farm to CNP non-competitive Reimbursement Grant and have spent all of the non-competitive funds.

*The Competitive Reimbursement Grant is now live! Please see the Request for Grant Applications (RFA) below in the Application Details section.
