Purpose

Grants for projects to provide nutrition education to participants in the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) program.

Desired outcomes include:

  • Improve nutrition-related knowledge among FDPIR participants, resulting in healthier food choices and a better understanding of healthy food preparation methods
  • Foster tribal capacity to provide nutrition education through the development of nutrition education resources, such as lesson materials and videos, and facilities, such as food demonstration spaces and educational gardens
  • Develop skills among FDPIR participants, such as canning, preparing fresh produce, and using lower fat cooking methods, leading to greater self-sufficiency and providing participants with greater flexibility in how they utilize healthy foods

Projects should use the FY 2019 SNAP Education Plan Guidance as the basis for educational activities.
