Making Sense of Regional Food Systems Partnership Grant

Members of the USDA RFSP grants team, current grantees from Alaska and New Mexico, and a RFSP former grant reviewer discuss this new USDA grant opportunity, its priorities and defining characteristics, and explore what it takes to create collaborative partnerships, impactful projects, and successful proposals.

The USDA Regional Food Systems Partnership grant is a new funding opportunity intended to support partnerships and collaboration that increase the impact and viability of regional food systems. For 2021 the program received a significant increase in funding and a reduction in match requirements through the COVID stimulus bills. That means that this year may be an important opportunity to apply for this grant. But since this program is so new, there are many unknowns. What differentiates this program from other USDA grants? What makes a compelling partnership and project? How do you define “regional” or “partnership”? 

This webinar explores the RFSP grant and unpacks what makes impactful partnerships, projects and proposals. USDA-AMS staff, current grantees, and past grant reviewers dig into these questions to help you and your partners design a competitive RFSP project.
