Grants of up to $50,000 to Illinois agencies for the purchase, renovation, and replacement of school food service equipment in public and private schools. Funding is intended for equipment that will improve the quality of school meals, enhance or expand participation in school meals, and increase the safety of food served in the school meal programs.
The National School Lunch Program Equipment Assistance Grant program allocates funding, via a competitive grant process, to School Food Authorities with schools participating in the National School Lunch Program to purchase and/or renovate equipment needed to serve healthier meals; improve food safety; expand access to school meals; and to help support the establishment, maintenance, or expansion of the School Breakfast Program.
Funds will allow SFAs to purchase or renovate equipment needed to serve healthier school meals, improve food safety, and expand access to school meals.
Allowable expenditures for this grant include costs associated with:
Examples of equipment include, but are not limited to, refrigeration (reach-in or walk-in, if efficiently sized), preparation equipment (convection oven, combination oven, steamer, tilt skillet, food processor), serving line ( (effective flow and components, including merchandising), holding cabinet, dishwasher, shelving, salad bar, food transport carts, carriers, and point-of-sale system.
SFAs are reminded that each unit must meet the federal definition of equipment as provided in 2 CFR 200.313: Equipment means tangible personal property having a useful life of more than one year and a per-unit acquisition cost that equals or exceeds the lesser of the capitalization level established by the non-federal entity for financial statement purposes, or $5,000. However, Congress has approved a lower threshold for the purchase of equipment made in this grant cycle; therefore, for this grant specifically, requested equipment must have a useful life of more than one year and a per-unit acquisition cost of at least $1,000.
