Grant to a Nevada nonprofit organization to increase the distribution of food to rural communities. The purpose of the program is to address food insecurity and accessibility issues as well as to support Coronavirus (COVID-19) recovery efforts. Funding is intended is to support the establishment of a food storage and distribution center in rural Nevada.

The goal of the RFH grant is to increase food storage and food distribution capacity in rural Nevada to better serve remote communities. Per the 2021 US Census, rural and Tribal Nevada communities make up less than 20% of the state’s population. These communities face unique food access challenges, including long distances to food assistance sources and a less robust food storage and distribution infrastructure than Nevada’s urban areas. This grant aims to target the full $3,000,000 to address the challenges of providing food to Nevadans in rural and Tribal communities. The targeted outcome will be to improve food access in rural Nevada by creating a food distribution center that can store and distribute food to communities facing food access barriers. Successful applicants for funding will clearly articulate how proposed projects and actions will contribute to the desired outcomes.

Funds from this grant award must be used to support approved project goals. Grant awards may be used to fund a variety of different projects and activities, including:

  • Warehouse construction, purchase, and/or lease
  • Food storage infrastructure (coolers, freezers, racking, etc.)
  • Food distribution infrastructure (trucks, pallet jacks, forklifts, etc.)
  • Personnel costs associated with grant implementation
