Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Small Grants

USDA’s Economic Research Service is the primary federal agency conducting research on government-sponsored food assistance and nutrition programs. To encourage research on these government programs, ERS sponsors “small grants” to researchers across the country. Farm Foundation helped to bring these researchers together to present their findings and generate new ideas and approaches at the Second Annual Small Grants Conference in Washington D.C., Oct. 19 and 20, 2000. ERS published a compilation of the research summaries presented. In the spring of 2001, each of the five partner institutions had a mid-year workshop for the 2000 grant awardees to review research progress.  This facilitated completion of reports for the October 2001 conference.
