2022 National School Lunch Program (NSLP) Equipment Assistance Grant (EAG)


Due: Thursday, December 8, 2022

These funds allow school food authorities (SFA) to purchase food service equipment to serve healthier meals that meet the updated meal pattern requirements, replace outdated and worn equipment, improve food safety, and to help support the establishment, maintenance, or expansion of the School Breakfast Program. It gives priority to those SFAs that have not received an equipment grant since 2018.
