"The Food Insecurity Nutrition Incentive (FINI) Grant Program supports projects to increase the purchase of fruits and vegetables among low-income consumers participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by providing incentives at the point of purchase. There are three categories of projects:

  1. FINI Pilot Projects (awards not to exceed a total of $100,000 over one year);
  2. Multi-year, community-based FINI Projects (awards not to exceed a total of $500,000 over no more than four years); and
  3. Multi-year, FINI Large-Scale Projects (awards of $500,000 or more over no more than four years).

The program will test strategies that could contribute to our understanding of how best to increase the purchase of fruits and vegetables by SNAP participants that would inform future efforts, and develop effective and efficient benefit redemption technologies."
