Kaiser Permanente releases grantfunding opportunity to decrease food insecurity

Kaiser Permanente recently announced a new grantfunding opportunity to decrease food insecurity. The request for proposals will invest up to $1,000,000 over two (2) years with awards up to $100,000 per organization. Food insecurity refers to the degree to which food intake is reduced or normal eating patterns disrupted because of lack of money and other resources.

The outcomes of the funding opportunity are:
  • Increase enrollment in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) 
  • Increase participation in the Summer Food Service Program 
Organizations may submit proposals that focus on one or both of these outcomes.

Kaiser Permanente will conduct a live webinar on September 15, 2015 at 11 a.m. MT for interested organizations. Advance registration is required by e-mailing co-contributions@kp.org, but participation is not a required part of the application process. Applications are due October 30, 2015.
