This program provides funding to eligible organizations to partially subsidize the cost of CSA shares to Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program participants.
The goals of this program are to:
1. Support farmers/producers in New York by allowing greater access to their products throughout the state.
2. Allow SNAP participants in NY the opportunity to access weekly shares of fresh, locally grown produce.
3. Strengthen community bonds and raise awareness of the bounty of NY produce in regions across the state.
New York producers are eligible to receive up to 50% of the cost of a weekly share purchased by a SNAP recipient with their SNAP benefits through an awarded third party applicant. All proposals should identify the producers being targeted and/or the beneficiaries of the reduced cost share, as applicable to the project. A maximum amount of 20% of the award may be used for administrative costs directly related to the project.
Awards for this opportunity will be made on a rolling basis to eligible and qualified applicants until funds are depleted. The final deadline is November 1, 2023. Do not wait to apply.
