New RFA for the TOPS Program Improvement Awards

posted Nov 3, 2015, 2:13 PM by Rachel Elrom
TOPS is pleased to announce the release of a new Request for Applications (RFA) for Program Improvement Awards (PIA) through the TOPS Small Grant Program. As in past years, the TOPS PIA small grants program prioritizes collaboration, promising practices, capacity building, enhanced quality, continuous improvement, and practical innovation for new or existing programs. Any proposed activity submitted for a PIA grant must fill a gap or a recognized need in effective food security and nutrition programming, and the results must be shared to benefit the entire implementing community. Applications that substantively involve more than one participating organization in the proposed actions will broaden the learning experience.

TOPS anticipates funding up to a total of eight (8) Program Improvement Awards in two rounds (four per round) with a ceiling of $100,000 per award. Concept papers will be accepted any time during each of two rounds and will be reviewed at the end of each round:
  • Round 1: January 31, 2016
  • Round 2: March 31, 2016
