Application Period Open for COVID Food Security Support Grants
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/06/2020

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture is inviting food banks and pantries to apply for COVID-19 Food Security Network Support Grants.

Last week, the agency released a Request for Proposals for an estimated $5 million in grants to help with costs incurred by food banks and pantries related to COVID-19. Applications can be completed online at FoodSecurity.wi.gov.

Grant funds will be distributed through a competitive review process and will be awarded for costs that are related to COVID-19.

Pantries are strongly encouraged to work through their respective food banks to ensure their needs are represented and demonstrate partnerships, rather than submit their own separate application. Payments are estimated to be issued beginning in mid-August.

The funds are made possible through money provided to the state by the federal CARES Act.

More information can be found at: www.FoodSecurity.wi.gov. The application period is open through July 22.
