Local Foods, Local Places 2019-2020 Application

Background

Webinar on Applying for Local Foods, Local Places Assistance

On September 4, 2019, from 2-3 p.m. Eastern time, we will host a webinar to provide an overview of the Local Foods, Local Places program and the selection criteria for the 2019-2020 application. Click here to register for the webinar.
Local Foods, Local Places helps communities revitalize neighborhoods through development of local food systems. In 2018, the program was supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the Northern Border Regional Commission.
Local Foods, Local Places aims to support projects that do all of the following:
  • Create livable, walkable, economically vibrant main streets and mixed-use neighborhoods.
  • Boost economic opportunities for local farmers and main street businesses.
  • Improve access to healthy, local food, especially among disadvantaged populations.
See the main Local Foods, Local Places page to learn about past projects.
The Local Foods, Local Places program will provide selected communities planning assistance that centers around a two-day community workshop. At the workshop, a team of experts will help community members develop an implementable action plan that promotes local food and neighborhood revitalization. Click here to see examples of action plans from community workshops organized through this assistance.  This assistance is not a grant, and the program does not provide money directly to communities.
