Wholesome Wave offers grants to increase access to healthy food

Wholesome Wave ​is offering funding for making produce affordable through ​the Nutrition Incentive Program Support and Innovation Grant (NIPSIG).

Successful applicants will receive up to $25,000 for innovative solutions that use nutrition incentives to make produce more affordable. With $200,000 in funding available, applicants are encouraged to propose a variety of projects including those that help low-income Americans buy produce at farmers markets, brick-and-mortar stores, food banks or pantries, through produce prescription or wellness programs, and food waste or ‘seconds’ initiatives. We especially seek to fund projects that increase affordable access to locally grown produce.
