How to apply...
Each year FAS announces on it web site http://www.fas.usda.gov/ the invitation period for the Food for Progress program. Organizations apply for program funds by submitting a Plan of Operation required by 7 CFR 1499.5. Organizations may also submit supplemental information that summarizes the need for the program in the country and organizational capabilities to implement the program.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
