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


Note: The due date for the request for applications has passed. This page is for reference and administration of funding.

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meet the nutritional standards with an emphasis on more fresh fruit and vegetables, improve food safety, replacing outdated and worn equipment and expand access.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.
