Examples of Funded Projects

Fiscal Year 2012: Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, Public Law 112-55, did not provide funding for the HUFED program in FY 2012; therefore, NIFA did not offer the funding opportunity this fiscal year.

(Per NIFA s website - http://www.nifa.usda.gov/fo/healthyurbanfoodenterprisedevelopmentcenter.cfm).

Fiscal Year 2013: The HUFED Center award expired on June 30, 2013.

A final report detailing activities and accomplishments will be submitted with 90 days of the end of the award.

Fiscal Year 2014: HUFED is neither in NIFA s budget, nor the president s budget for FY 14.

Hence, future funding for this program is not anticipated.
