Grants to Texas nonprofit organizations, food banks, and community organizations for programs that enhance the state's food supply chain. Funding is intended to promote and strengthen market opportunities for local agricultural producers. Priority is given to assisting socially disadvantaged producers to increase products distributed to underserved communities. In addition, TDA aims to tailor food distribution for unique local challenges to serve the State's population and feeding programs, including food banks and other organizations that target underserved communities.

Funding through the TxLFPA will allow new relationships to be formed between vendors (small farmers and food manufacturers) and the grant recipients. Besides immediate sale impacts, it is anticipated that vendors will expand their brand awareness, not just with the entity purchasing their food products, but also with the end consumer who may continue to seek them out in the future, providing longer-term economic impact to the businesses. 


  • Support and strengthen the local and regional food system by building and enhancing relationships between community organizations and food businesses.
  • Support food distribution through new distribution sites to meet the population’s diverse cultural preferences in underserved communities.
  • Track metrics, evaluate results, and share program performance information with interested audiences to increase opportunities for sustainability.
  • Procure culturally relevant food for the diverse communities in Texas. 

The expectation of this program is for selected applicants to spend the predominance of awarded funds on food purchases. Food purchases can include both fresh and processed foods. Applicants may also request direct and indirect costs associated with developing and administering the program in accordance with 2 CFR § 200.413-414.

All food purchased must meet the definition of domestically produced as well as the definition of local as defined here:

Funds may also be used to cover the activities associated with program development, administration, food storage, and food distribution. Applications submitted to TDA by non-profit/community organizations must detail both how they will target underserved communities that are not generally served through traditional food distribution networks and also describe their plan for connecting with new socially disadvantaged producers and food manufacturers.
