Webinar Recordings Now Available for FY 2019 Request for Applications

Farm to School Month may be ending, but there are still more than four weeks left to submit your application for funding through the FY 2019 Farm to School Grant Program. This month, the Office of Community Food Systems (OCFS) held a two part webinar for potential grant applicants.  These webinars were recorded and you can listen to them online on the Grant Applicant Resources page.

The first webinar, “Submitting a Grant Application”, provided an overview of how to apply for the FY ’19 Farm to School Grant Program RFA. Watch this recording to familiarize yourself with the requirements of the RFA and how to submit your completed application on grants.gov.

The second webinar, “Developing and Writing a Successful Application”, featured a closer look at how to prepare a competitive Farm to School application. This webinar provides an overview of how to develop an integrated farm to school project that addresses the need of your target audience and aligns with the intent of the grant program. Watch the second webinar to learn the keys to writing a succinct application that clearly outlines your project’s objectives and increases potential for success.
