The Regional Food System Partnerships (RFSP) program supports public-private partnerships focusing on increasing the availability of locally and regionally produced agricultural products and alleviating administrative and technical barriers. The goal of RFSP is to encourage landscape-level approaches to planning and developing regional food economies through the formation of multi-stakeholder partnerships supporting on-the-ground projects. Projects can cover the planning, design, implementation, or expansion of local and regional food economies. Approximately $40 million is available in funding. Learn more and apply today.

Priority consideration will be given to applications that:

  • Leverage significant non-Federal financial and technical resources and coordinate with other local, State, Tribal, or national efforts.
  • Cover an area that includes communities with areas of concentrated poverty that provide significant opportunities for high impact investment; or
  • Have a diverse set of relevant project partners, although such partners need not be based in the partnership’s defined region.
