Hundreds of farmers markets, supermarkets, convenience stores, and retail food stores of all kinds are now participating in FINI grant projects all across the country. Projects funded through FINI range from small pilot projects to multi-year community-based projects and larger scale multi-year projects, designed to help make the healthy choice an affordable choice for SNAP participants. But the deadline to apply for the latest round grants is December 12, 2016.
The new locator map will help consumers find participating retailers through searching by location for specific types of stores like traditional retailers, specialty food stores, and farmers markets.
