Grants to New York nonprofit organizations and government agencies to increase the availability of healthy food in eligible Central Brooklyn neighborhoods. Applicants must be prequalified in the online grants system prior to applying. Applications are invited from organizations that offer emergency food services or operate mobile markets.
Nonprofits located in the following neighborhoods are eligible to apply for funding: Brownsville; Bushwick; Canarsie; Crown Heights; Cypress Hills/Ocean Hill; East Flatbush; East New York; Prospect Heights; and Prospect Lefferts Gardens.
The Mobile Markets Grant Program will fund not-for-profit organizations to establish or expand mobile farmers’ markets and pantry infrastructure that carry fresh, locally sourced food for distribution in Central Brooklyn. The residents in Central Brooklyn often have limited access to healthy food options. These populations may experience higher rates of obesity and diet-related diseases resulting from poor nutrition. In urban areas like Brooklyn, high real estate costs may inhibit the creation of permanent diversified grocers who have a consistent selection of fresh food. Mobile markets are more flexible and less expensive than constructing and operating full-scale grocery stores and can serve more neighborhoods at a fraction of the cost. Such efforts are funded by a variety of local organizations, private donors, and federal programs, but the need continues to outpace available funding.
Grant funds may be used for any of the following purposes directly related to the completion of an eligible project, including but not limited to:
- Purchase of vehicle, carts, or other mobile transport unit
- Mobile technology necessary to complete transactions
