Webinar: Local Food Purchase Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Join IAC and the USDA-Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) to learn more about the Local Food Purchase Assistance Cooperative Agreement Program (LFPA) which provides $400 million in non-competitive agreements to Tribes and states to support local food purchasing and distribution.

This important funding opportunity supports purchasing from local producers who do not have to be AMS-certified vendors while supporting local food distribution efforts. Make plans to attend to learn about this program and other opportunities with AMS.

AMS will be holding weekly "office hours" for Tribal government/department representatives to get questions answered relating to the open application which closes on April 5, 2022. More information will be shared during the presentation.
