Section 17(n) of the Act authorizes FNS to provide grants on a competitive basis to State agencies that participate in the SNAP LDP.

Up to $5 million in grant funding is available in FY 2022 to support State participation.

Technology and data related projects often take more than one year,


especially considering the procurement and implementation of associated projects.

Therefore, this funding is available as a multi-year grant with a four-year Period of Performance (PoP) from September 2022 to September 202 6. States that received a SNAP LDP grant in FY 2021 are eligible to reapply and must propose a new and compelling project to pursue with FY 2022 grant funds.

States that applied but were not selected for a SNAP LDP grant in FY 2021 will be given priority for FY 2022 grant awards.

States that want to participate in the SNAP LDP must work with the Census Bureau to draft a new or amend a current Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).

Grant awardees will then begin sharing data, as documented per their MOU, and the Census Bureau will begin the process of creating the longitudinal linkages for the database.

States that do not have a signed MOU within 30 days of award will not receive grant funding.

FNS highly encourages States to begin the MOU process soon after submitting their grant proposals in order to ensure they are eligible for funding.

States may find more information about this process in the SNAP Parameters for Participation (PFP) (Longitudinal Data Project (LDP) USDA-FNS).

All funding is determined based on the number of grant requests and available funds.
