Did your school get part of the $100 million in school lunch equipment grants given by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 2009? If not, you’re still in luck!
The USDA announced in January 2010 that $25 million in additional funds will be available this year for school foodservice authorities to obtain lunch equipment. In addition, any funds that were not awarded (or were rejected) by the 2009 ARRA grants will be re-allocated.
Since the USDA did not create a application process for all states, each state agency will use their own selection process to determine and notify the winners. Most states have yet to release any information, but will probably make their decisions using the applications submitted for the 2009 ARRA Grants.
