•Provide updates on selected USDA programs that promote local food systems and support healthy food access in communities
•Identify certain grant opportunities for community based and not-for-profit organizations: as direct applicants, or in partnership with educational institutions
•Focus on grant application process timeline and elements for success, e.g.: early preparation, relevant and timely information, requirements, technical assistance, strategic partnerships
