The FSIG Program seeks to ensure that farmers, commercial fishermen, and other local food producers are better engaged with a strong, resilient food system to help mitigate food supply and distribution disruptions, as well as to ensure that individuals and families throughout the Commonwealth have equitable access to food, with a focus on food that is produced locally.



Eligible grantees include applicants that are part of the Massachusetts local food system including producers, processors, and distributors; emergency food distributors; community and food organizations; school meal programs (including summer meal sponsors); urban farms and community gardens; and nonprofit food security organizations. Applicants may be those representing farms, small, independent grocery stores, food banks, commercial fishing operations, seafood dealers and processors, and other food system businesses or organizations focused on addressing food access and/or improving and strengthening the resiliency of the Commonwealth’s food system by increasing distribution of Locally Grown Food.


Application Process and Deadline

All applications must be submitted by 4:00 PM on Thursday, May 2nd, 2024 through the Online FSIG Application.
