Selection Criteria

High-quality proposals will demonstrate the ability, capacity, and expertise to successfully and independently:

  • Assess and respond to changing community needs and inequities that impact SNAP-Ed eligible peoples’ healthy eating and active living
  • Integrate into focus communities and/or engage with focus populations, developing an on-the-ground understanding of current and emergent needs
  • Design a tailored program approach based on a systems-level view to community change
  • Deliver comprehensive, community-based programming that balances policy, systems, and environmental change (PSE) efforts that support healthy eating and active living with complementary direct education (DE) intervention(s) focusing on individual behavior change
  • Apply multi-sector collaboration work to PSE change efforts
  • Manage and monitor program operations and programming, including ensuring that selected intervention(s) are implemented with fidelity
  • Use evaluation to inform program improvement

Proposals, including the conversation component, undergo an objective review process that includes external content-expert reviewers who score each proposal on how well proposed evidence-based programming meets identified community needs, inclusion of comprehensive community approaches, and demonstrated ability to independently implement a SNAP-Ed program.

Note: Prior funding from MFF is not a guarantee of future funding. Past SNAP-Ed program and operations compliance, completion of grant requirements, and program performance will be considered in the proposal review process, as applicable.

All funding is contingent on the availability of funds.
