Additional Funding Opportunity for CY 2020 Conference for Food Protection (CFP) Travel Assistance Subawards
Applications Due by Monday, February 17, 2020 at 7:59 PM Eastern Time
In addition to the annual subawards offered for CY 2020 through the AFDO-Managed Retail Program Standards Grant Program (subawards were made in December 2019), there is a special funding opportunity opening today. This opportunity is separate from the regular CY 2020 annual funding program, and jurisdictions who were awarded CY 2020 AFDO Subawards are eligible to apply for a CY 2020 CFP Travel Assistance Subaward.
Additional Funding Opportunity for CY 2020 CFP Travel Assistance Subawards: For SLTT jurisdictions in need of funding to attend the CY 2020 Conference for Food Protection, Category 3 Training Project applications will be accepted via the AFDO-Managed Retail Program Standards Grant Program Portal (afdo.org/retailstandards) from January 21, 2020 through February 17, 2020 at 7:59 PM ET. Applicants should refer to the CY 2020 CFP Travel Assistance Subawards Grant Guidance Supplement for application instructions (http://foodsafetygrants.org/retailstandards/documents/2020CFPguidance.pdf).
Important Details Regarding this CY 2020 CFP Travel Assistance Subaward Opportunity:
To be eligible for this funding opportunity, applications must be made by a State, Local, Tribal or Territorial (SLTT) regulatory agency that has a food program and develops policy regarding retail food. Payments will be made to the regulatory agency, who will then reimburse funded employees (whose names, titles, and CFP roles were outlined in the application).
Regulatory agencies sending multiple employees to CFP may use a single application to apply for up to $800 per person for travel assistance for CFP attendance, March 30 – April 3, 2020 in Denver, CO. Eligible costs to be covered under this opportunity include airfare/transport and hotel accommodations only.
All applications will receive an in-depth Administrative Review.
Emphasis will be placed on providing funding to Conference members from SLTT regulatory jurisdictions whose participation might otherwise be denied due to budget constraints. The following criteria, listed in priority order, will be used for determination of funding: Council membership; Assembly of State Delegate status (State Delegate/Alternate); Committee status; and attendance approval in place.
* Maximum subaward amount is $800 per person except for AK, HI and U.S. Territories when adequate justification is provided.
