food-culture-i-mini-unitFirst Nations Development Institute: Native Agriculture and Food Systems Initiative
The First Nations Development Institute invests in innovative institutions and models that strengthen asset control and support economic development for American Indian people and their communities. In 2014, First Nation’s Native Agriculture and Food Systems Initiative will provide up to ten grants, averaging $37,500, to support projects that increase access to fresh, healthy foods and improve the overall health and well-being of Native children and families. Priority will be given to projects aimed at increasing the availability of healthy, locally-produced foods in Native communities; projects that work to reduce food insecurity; and entrepreneurship programs that create systemic change by increasing community control of local food systems. Native American-controlled nonprofit tribal organizations and community-based groups committed to increasing healthy food access in rural and reservation-based Native communities are eligible to apply. Online proposals must be submitted by December 6, 2013. Visit the First Nations website to learn more about the funding guidelines and application process.
