Request a Grant Writer

Grants to California local educational agencies to purchase equipment needed to serve healthier school lunches. Funding is intended to assist local schools in serving healthier meals, provide more fresh fruit and vegetables, expand access, and improve food safety. Priority is given to school food authorities that are high-need and have 50 percent or more enrolled students who are eligible for free or reduced-price (F/RP) meals.

The Nutrition Services Division (NSD) will give priority to those sites that did not receive funds from the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestments Act grants or the 2010, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, or 2018 NSLP equipment grants.

 The NSD will give priority to those SFAs with a higher F/RP percentage in underserved communities. The NSD will also give priority to those SFAs that can explicitly document how the equipment purchased will reflect the intent of the grant with specific emphasis on impacting nutrition quality, serving healthier meals, and meeting nutritional standards as well as how the SFA will sustain these improvements in the years to come.

Definition of Equipment:

Equipment requests may include new or renovated equipment. Title 2, Code of Federal Regulations (2 CFR), Section 200.33, defines equipment as tangible personal property having a useful life of more than one year and a per-unit acquisition cost that equals or exceeds the federal capitalization threshold of $5,000. However, for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2019 EAG, Congress has authorized a lower threshold for the purchase of equipment. This lowered purchase threshold only applies to FY 2019 EAG funds and cannot be lower than $1,000.

It is also permissible for SFAs to set their own lower capitalization threshold. For more information, see the Additional Information link in the Pre-Application field below.
