School Breakfast Program Expansion Grant
School Breakfast Program (SBP) Expansion Grant
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced two rounds of mini grants to directly benefit the School Breakfast Program (SBP). Eligible School Food Authorities (SFAs) will be able to apply for $10,000 (total for each round) to increase school breakfast participation by expanding and/or promoting the school breakfast program; or increase nutritional content and/or quality of food served in the school breakfast program.
The SBP Expansion Grant Objectives:
- Provide subgrants to Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) for qualifying schools to establish, maintain, or expand the SBP.
- Increase breakfast participation in qualifying schools.
- Increase nutritional content and/or quality of food served.
To qualify as a potential sub-recipient, a school must be considered “severe need.” For a school to be severe need, 40% or more of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) lunches served at the school were served to free and reduced-price eligible students. The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is using severe need and eligibility data from SY 2019-2020 (FY 2020).
Grant Funds available are $10,000 for each round (two rounds total, one for fiscal year 2023 and one for fiscal year 2024) and may be used at one or multiple eligible buildings based on specific need.
Any questions can be directed to the School Nutrition Program at (517) 241-5374 or MDE-SchoolNutrition@michigan.gov.
