Eligible entities for this opportunity are limited to the following:
nonprofits having


a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS; units of local government; a Tribal Government; and schools serving grades kindergarten through grade 12 (see section C.

Eligibility Information).

The primary goal of the UAIP pilot project is to support the development of urban agriculture and innovative production.

The two types of UAIP grants being made available for application under this NFO are Planning Projects and Implementation Projects.

Planning Projects are for supporting the development of projects that will either initiate, build upon, or expand the efforts of farmers, gardeners, citizens, government officials, schools, members of tribal communities, and other stakeholders in areas where access to fresh foods are limited or unavailable.

Implementation Projects are for accelerating existing and emerging models of urban and/or innovative agricultural practices that serve multiple farmers or gardeners.

Innovation may include new and emerging, as well as traditional or indigenous, agricultural practices.

One of the most significant challenges to social entrepreneurship and innovation is ensuring a diversity of approaches and participants in the movement. To truly deliver meaningful social change the leaders of the effort must share perspectives of the challenges faced by communities across the U.S. that can most appropriately come from members of those communities. Ashoka, through its All America initiative seeks to increase the diversity of social entrepreneurship practitioners.
