Since 2008, FNS awards funding for nutrition education projects through Food Distribution Program Nutrition Education (FDPNE) grants each fiscal year.
Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs) and State agencies (SAs) that are current FDPIRallowance holders (have a direct agreement with FNS to administer
FDPIR) are eligible to apply for funds to conduct projects that provide nutrition information and services to FDPIR participants.
The FY 2016 SNAP Education Plan Guidance is the basis for FDPNE nutrition, gardening, and physical activities.
FNS selects components of this guidance for development of FDPNE project requirements.
