School nutrition leaders across the United States are taking advantage of a federal grant program aimed at helping local school districts upgrade and enhance their cafeterias and kitchens as well as nutrition support programs. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has rolled out a series of programs that totals $80 million in grant funding for school nutrition programs. 

The programs are meant to help schools combat higher food prices and supply chain disruptions as well as help students return to the classroom after the pandemic disruptions. 

First, the USDA announced $50 million in Equipment Assistance Grant funding provided by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) (PL 117-2). 

The additional funding will support school food authorities (SFAs) in providing healthy and appealing meals by meeting essential food service equipment needs.

This funding reflects USDA’s financial commitment to supporting school nutrition leaders in a successful return to normal National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) operations. 

Many school districts across the country are leveraging the funds to invest in temperature monitoring solutions like Sonicu’s to increase food safety and automate regulatory compliance. 

Sonicu serves K-12 and higher education nutrition officials in districts nationwide with our plug-and-play temperature monitoring solution ideal for any walk-in or reach-in cooler or freezer.

How the Funding Works: Solicit your State Department of Education 

The grant funding will work alongside other financial support assisting schools in navigating challenges – including the additional reimbursement funds for school meals, and supply chain allocation funds to purchase domestic food for meal programs, according to the Department of Agriculture. 

Schools can apply the funding to purchase equipment for a variety of important improvements, including: 

  • Purchasing tools that support scratch cooking
  • Storing fresh food from local producers
  • Receiving food deliveries in a more efficient manner

These improvements will be used to 

  • Maintain and improve food and agricultural supply chain resiliency 
  • Increase the efficiency of SFA procurement
  • Enabling a wider variety of food purchases through scratch cooking 

 

Additionally, award of these grants will benefit recipient school nutrition officials by helping them meet equipment needs associated with a return to standard operating procedures following the pandemic. 

The U.S.D.A. encourages school officials to take advantage of the training offered by the companies on how to use their specific equipment.

“At Sonicu we take great pride in our limitless on demand training as well as our monthly live training designed to ensure every one of our customers understands how to use our temperature and IAQ monitoring technology to improve their safety,” said Bryan Mitchell, Marketing, Sonicu. 

The $50 million dollars in ARPA funding is in addition to the $30 million provided by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022, (PL 117-103). 

This ARPA funding is being made available to state agencies in addition to the previously announced $30 million to competitively award Equipment Assistance subgrants to eligible SFAs participating in the NSLP. 

Subgrant Awards by State: Act Now to Claim your Funding 

State agencies will competitively award subgrants to SFAs and schools to purchase equipment, with a value of greater than $1,000, needed to 

  • serve healthier meals, 
  • support scratch cooking, 
  • improve food safety, 
  • store fresh food, 
  • upgrade equipment, and to 
  • help support the establishment, maintenance, or expansion of the SBP.
    Graphic with brands_Sonicu and associations monochromatic-1

The U.S.D.A. is encouraging state to support as many schools with equipment needs as possible with this funding. 

Equipment must be purchased, used, managed and disposed of in accordance with the governing 2 CFR requirements.

State agencies may consider any SFA participating in the NSLP eligible to receive a subgrant award.

When making awards, state agencies have discretion to use selection criteria in the Request for Application (RFA) they develop that best meets the unique needs of the school nutrition facilities in their state. 

Selection criteria factors that state agencies may consider include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Age of food service equipment or lack of appropriate items
  • Ability of food service equipment to increase the efficiency of SFA procurement, food storage, and distribution/service
  • The availability of existing state and local funding for equipment purchases
  • Strategies for adopting lunchroom changes that provide more convenience and appeal to the student
  • Opportunities to realize meaningful impacts on nutrition and quality of meals.

State agencies must submit a copy of the RFA they will use in connection with the SFA award process, to their respective Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) regional program office for prior approval. 

The RFA must include all applicable terms and conditions both at the federal and state level (government-wide and USDA requirements).

Why Choose Sonicu: American-made and support & Affordable

Funding

For the funding available in this fiscal year, officials used the State Administrative Expense (SAE) allocation formula to issue the available $80 million to state agencies. 

The state agency funding allocation attachment details the original $30 million allocation and the additional $50 million, as well as the total amount the state agency will receive. 

A new FNS-529, Grant Award, will be provided to the state agencies reflecting their new allocation. 

A state agency may not use more than five percent of its allocation for administrative costs associated with awarding grants to eligible SFAs.

Funding Goals

As with all federal grant funds, procurement regulations at 7 CFR Part 210.21 and 2 CFR Part 200.317-326 apply, and equipment competitively procured using these grant funds must be necessary, reasonable, and allocable. 

State agencies’ NSLP Equipment Assistance Grant announcements to SFAs must highlight the requirement to follow all federal, state, and local procurement laws when purchasing equipment with these grant awards.

SFAs awarded grant funds are encouraged to purchase equipment made domestically.

Period of Performance

The effective dates of these subgrants will vary; however, the performance period for all such subgrants from states to SFAs must end Sept. 30, 2024 (i.e., the termination date). While the performance period remains unchanged from SP 14-2022, FNS understands substantial increases in funding and supply chain disruptions may impact state and schools’ ability to spend these funds. FNS will monitor obligation of these funds and will consider all requests from the state to extend the period of performance, as needed.

 

 

The Final Financial Report must be entered into FPRS within 120 days of the expiration of the grant agreement. This report must also be certified by the Recipient’s chief fiscal officer or an officer of comparable rank. State agency staff that do not already have access to the “CN-NSLPE-v5” program in FPRS, must submit an FNS-674 to their regional office point-of-contact.
