FY17 WIC Special Project Grants Full Mini

These grant awards are contingent upon the availability of funding and will be awarded as cooperative agreements to allow the Food and Nutrition Service more active participation with the grantee during both project development and project execution.

Should additional funding be made available,

FNS will use those funds to make additional awards.

FNS reserves the right to award additional grantees with no further competition in subsequent years.Only the 90 WIC State agencies responsible for administering WIC in the States, Territories, and Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs) may apply as a lead agency for the grant.

However, successful grants depend on partnerships between the lead State agency and local WIC agencies, local colleges or universities, public health organizations (government or nongovernment), Head Start programs or other similar programs serving low income families with children under 5 years of age.

Strong collaborations within States and local agencies enhance the delivery of WIC services and therefore, it is strongly recommended that State agencies reach out to their local WIC agencies for collaborative inputs in the proposal development process.Local WIC agencies may also reach out to their State agencies with innovative ideas relevant for collaboration on proposal development for Full or Mini Grants, and they may leverage existing partnerships with academic institutions and other local organizations (government or non-government) during the proposal development process.Regardless of the approach, State agencies are responsible to lead all Full and Mini Grant proposals and partnerships.

In coordination with their State, local agencies may manage a Mini Grant project that will be based out of their location.

However, State agencies will still be responsible for the submission of all Mini Grant proposals, as well all oversight activities related to implementation of the grant.This RFA is for Full or Mini Grants ONLY
