Based on partner organizations’ feedback and the evolution of requirements at USDA, the Michigan Fitness Foundation (MFF) has redesigned our SNAP-Ed grantmaking structure for FY 2021.

The MFF SNAP-Ed Community Impact Grants are intended to influence positive change in individual health behaviors and in the policies, systems, and environments that impact access to affordable healthy food and safe opportunities to be active.

There are two funding options for the MFF SNAP-Ed Community Impact Grants available to new or returning partner organizations: Request for Proposals (RFP) and Request for Applications (RFA). This grantmaking structure will replace previous annual requests for proposals (RFP) and mid-year requests for applications (RFA).

Organizations, including those that have previously received MFF SNAP-Ed funding, should review and consider BOTH funding opportunities to determine the best fit. Organizations may only submit one request (RFP or RFA). All grants are contingent on the availability of funds.

Propose

Propose a comprehensive SNAP-Ed program clearly tied to community needs and demonstrate organizational capacity to independently design and deliver highly-effective programming within federal grant requirements.

NOTE: Due to the unprecedented situation with COVID-19, we will NOT require hard copies of your proposal to be printed and mailed to MFF. If there is a need for hard copies of your proposal after the RFP deadline, MFF will contact you by May 1, 2020.

Apply

Apply to deliver a locally-relevant packaged program to your identified populations in selected settings that you will collaboratively design with MFF.
