Proposal Package Checklist

  • Budget Worksheet
  • SNAP-Ed Compliance Assurances
  • Evaluation Assurances
  • Current and Pending

The Program Narrative should be a Word document; the Budget Worksheet an Excel document; and the SNAP-Ed Compliance Assurances, Evaluation Assurances, and Current and Pending documents as PDF documents.

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 wrap-around 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 programming, including ensuring that selected intervention(s) are implemented with fidelity
  • Use evaluation to inform program improvement

Proposals undergo an objective review process that includes external content-expert reviewers who score each proposal on how well proposed evidence-based programming met identified community needs, inclusion of community wrap-around 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 grant 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.
