National School Lunch Program (NSLP) Equipment Grant

Additional Funding for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 National School Lunch Program Equipment Grants for School Food Authorities: The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) continues to recognize the challenges facing schools nationwide. Higher food prices and supply chain disruptions have played a role in postponing other important food service purchases. To further mitigate these challenges and support schools, the USDA is pleased to announce an additional $50 million in Equipment Assistance Grant funding! For school year 2023 equipment grants, Ohio originally received $985,299 and through the new funding has received $1,629,235 for a total of $2,614,534. The additional funding will support school food authorities (SFAs) in providing healthy and appealing meals by meeting vital food service equipment needs. As more information and timelines become available for the equipment grant application and funding, updates will be provided in the weekly email. 

The equipment grant survey will be opening in the next couple of weeks. To prepare for the survey, SFAs are encouraged to review current needs and approximating costs of their requests.
