Funding Opportunities- July 24, 2015

Upcoming Funding Opportunity – Rural Child Poverty Nutrition Center
The Rural Child Poverty Nutrition Center (RCPNC) at the University of Kentucky is pleased to provide notice about its upcoming Request for Applications (RFA) for a grant project. Projects funded through this grant program will use creative strategies to increase coordination among United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) Child Nutrition programs and other nutrition assistance programs.

RCPNC is sending this advance notice so that its pre-announcement can be circulated to organizations that are eligible and interested in applying for the grants. Please assist us by forwarding this message to county-level organizations (e.g., cooperative extension offices, school food supervisors, county-level WIC administrators, local health departments, etc.) within your network. By providing this notice, we are also giving potential applicants more time to approach new or existing partners about collaborating on a project and applying for a grant.  Additional information about the grants and the RFA is available in the Notification of Funding Opportunity document attached
Watch for additional information and the official RFA at our website:
