The purpose of this grant is to distribute funds provided by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022, (Public Law 117-103), to State agencies to competitively award Equipment Assistance Grants to eligible School Food Authorities (SFAs) participating in the NSLP. The Equipment Assistance Grants will be especially effective in supporting SFAs, which have been experiencing supply chain disruptions resulting from the COVID-19 public health emergency and which have reported challenges in operating school food service. In addition, the timely award of these Equipment Assistance Grants will benefit recipient SFAs by enabling them to meet equipment needs associated with a return to standard operating procedures. Equipment requests may include new equipment, renovation of equipment, or replacement of equipment.
