This is an announcement of the availability of funds for one new cooperative agreement for a 2-year time-frame (September 2017 – August 2019) with an accredited public or private Academic Institute of Higher Learning, a Research, or Training Institution (i.e.

entity that provides training such


as a corporation or non-profit).

The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) expects to fund a competitive cooperative agreement award of approximately $3 million in Fiscal Year 2017 to a qualified applicant to develop, design, promote, conduct, and evaluate a training initiative that will equip State agencies administering CACFP with the knowledge and skills necessary to then effectively train and provide technical assistance on key topics to CACFP operators (including CACFP institutions such as sponsoring organizations and/or independent centers as well as CACFP facilities including child care centers and day care homes).

This award is contingent upon the availability of funds.

FNS may fund this project, in whole or in part, without further competition, in this or subsequent fiscal years.

The training tools, resources, or programs developed under this grant should support the activities of those who administer CACFP and/or improve service delivery that ultimately benefits program participants.

Section 17 of the Richard B.

Russell National School Lunch Act (42 U.S.C.

1766) provides authority to assure the effective and proper administration of the Child and Adult Care Food Program.

Under this program, subject to the availability of funds, the Secretary of Agriculture may award competitive grants and cooperative agreements for the support of training programs.
