FFY24 Nevada Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed) Request for Application (RFA)

Announcement of Federal Funding Opportunity

The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) in partnership with the Board of Regents, Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) University of Nevada Reno (UNR) – Extension (UNR EXT) is seeking applicants that are interested in contributing to improving nutrition and physical activity behaviors among low-income Nevadans. Nevada invites organizations that work with or desire to work with SNAP participants, low-income individuals eligible to receive benefits under SNAP or other means-tested Federal assistance programs, and individuals residing in communities with a significant (50 percent or greater) low-income population, to submit an application for funding. If awarded, the funding will allow the selected vendors to implement SNAP-Ed goals and objectives with direct management and guidance provided by UNR EXT. The DWSS will maintain administrative and fiscal oversight of the SNAP-Ed program.

The State of Nevada DWSS intends to subaward funding from Nevada’s FFY2024 SNAP-Ed allotment to the UNR EXT who will then contract with the selected vendors to assist UNR EXT with the implementation of SNAP-Ed programming.
