2020 National School Lunch Program (NSLP) Equipment Assistance Grant (EAG)

NOTE: The application due date for this program has passed.


Funding Description

This grant allows school food authorities (SFA) to purchase equipment needed to serve healthier meals, meet the nutritional standards with an emphasis on more fresh fruit and vegetables, improve food safety, replacing outdated and worn equipment and expand access. It gives priority to those SFAs that have not received an equipment grant since 2016.

Eligibility

Eligible Applicants Local educational agencies
Required Eligibility Criteria Public school districts, county offices of education, directly funded charter schools, private schools, and residential child care institutions that participate in the NSLP or School Breakfast Program can apply for this grant. The Nutrition Services Division (NSD) will give priority to those sites that did not receive funds from the 2016, 2017, 2018, or 2019 NSLP equipment grants. The NSD may consider SFAs with excess net cash resources (NCR) to be ineligible to receive an equipment grant. In accordance with Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 210.14(b), an SFA shall limit its NCR to an amount that does not exceed three-month average expenditures for its food service account.
Other Eligibility Considerations The CDE will award competitive grants of up to $100,000 per SFA. Each SFA may apply for no more than five sites. The NSD will give priority to those SFAs that have not received an EAG since 2016. The NSD will also give priority to those SFAs that can explicitly document how the equipment purchased will reflect the intent of the grant with specific emphasis on impacting nutrition quality, serving healthier meals, and meeting nutritional standards as well as how the SFA will sustain these improvements in the years to come.
