The provided summary of priority geographies and audiences based on the most recent statewide SNAP-Ed needs assessment shows where there may be gaps in SNAP-Ed programming in high need areas; however, it is not a requirement to serve these priority areas or audiences to be eligible to receive funding through the Request for Applications (RFA).
How many applicants will be considered for the next phase of the application process?
There is not a specific number of organizations that will be deemed eligible to move on to the next phase in the process. All funding is contingent on the availability of funds.
Is there a list of organizations who are currently funded by Michigan Fitness Foundation?

Week of 5/1 – 5/5
When does the program year begin?
We follow the federal fiscal year. Fiscal year 2024 starts October 1, 2023.
Is there a cap on the budget?
There is no specific cap. The key to the community impact projects is designing a “right sized” program that fits community needs and to build the budget for that.
