This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) / Request for Application (RFA) is being facilitated by UNR-EXT with the intent of the selected organizations to enter into a subaward agreement directly with UNR-EXT and administration from DWSS.

Full Budget Timeline: Funding for Nevada SNAP-Ed program implementation is reviewed, evaluated, and, if necessary, amended annually. Annual funding is contingent on the performance and annual evaluation of Implementing Organizations and on availability of Federal funds.

Pre-Award Costs: This grant does not allow reimbursement of any pre-award costs, such as printing of the application, mailing costs, or staff time spent reading related documents or writing an application.
