Due Date for Applications: June 30, 2016
Feeding America, in cooperation with The University of Kentucky Center for Poverty Research (UKCPR), will competitively award grants to qualified individuals to provide rigorous research that utilizes Map the Meal Gap (MMG) to expand our understanding of (a) the geographic distribution of food insecurity and its consequences and (b) locally-focused policy interventions that can be used to alleviate food insecurity. All projects must use one or more years of data from MMG. This may be supplemented with data from other sources, including the county-level price indices compiled by Nielsen and other data available at the county or congressional-district level. We anticipate awarding up to three grants at a maximum award ceiling of $30,000 each. This opportunity is generously underwritten by The Howard G. Buffett Foundation.
