CDFA accepting proposals for technical assistance providers for Healthy Refrigeration Grant Program

CDFA’s Office of Farm to Fork is now accepting proposals from technical assistance providers for the Healthy Refrigeration Grant Program. Proposals are due no later than 5 p.m. (PT) June 10.

This program funds energy-efficient refrigeration equipment in corner stores and small businesses in low-income and low-food-access areas, as well as supplying refrigeration equipment for food donation programs. The grants enable recipients to stock California-grown produce, nuts, dairy, meat and eggs, in addition to minimally-processed and culturally-appropriate foods.

Technical assistance providers are sought to conduct activities in one or both of the following categories:

  1. Outreach and Application Assistance: to promote the program to eligible applicants and assist interested parties to apply for equipment awards through CDFA-F2F; and
  2. Technical Expertise: to provide subject matter expertise in refrigeration equipment, energy efficiency, and best “healthy retail” practices, including stocking, promoting and selling fresh foods in a profitable and sustainable way.

Prospective applicants may access the request for proposals and learn how to apply on the Healthy Refrigeration Grant Program webpage
