Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $25,000 to South Carolina School Food Authorities for equipment that allow schools to serve healthier meals. Applicants are advised that required registration may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to enable SFAs to serve healthier meals, improve food safety, and to help support the maintenance and/or expansion of the School Breakfast Program.

Any SFA is eligible to receive a subgrant based on the following criteria:

  • The age of the food service equipment or lack of appropriate items,
  • The availability of existing state and local funding for equipment purchases,
  • Strategies for adopting lunchroom changes that provide more convenience and appeal to the student, and
  • Opportunities to realize meaningful impacts on nutrition and quality of meals.

Competitive Priorities:

The SCDE has established two competitive priorities for this funding cycle. Applicants must meet the following requirements and complete the competitive priorities section of the online application to qualify for the competitive priority bonus points.
  • Priority 1: Free or Reduced-Price Meals: To receive points, at least 50 percent of the school’s students must qualify for free or reduced-price meals. Bonus points will be awarded to applications that propose to serve students who qualify for free or reduced-price meals based on the ranges of free or reduced-price percentages in the table below. Schools that participate in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) must use their individual CEP claiming rate (the school’s Identified Student Percentage (ISP) multiplied by the 1.6 USDA adjustment factor) instead of the traditional free or reduced-price eligibility rate. CEP schools must use their individual ISP for the calculation instead of the district-wide or group ISP used for reimbursement claims.
  • Priority 2: Has not received a previous NSLP Equipment subgrant award: Five bonus points will be awarded to applications that propose to serve schools with an enrollment of 50 percent or more students eligible for free or reduced-price meals that have never received a subgrant.
