Food Pantry Assistance Grant Program

Abstract

The bill creates the food pantry assistance grant program (grant program) to aid Colorado food pantries and food banks in the purchase of foods to meet the needs of their clientele, which has expanded significantly as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency. A secondary purpose of the grant program is to create new market opportunities for Colorado's agricultural producers. Food purchased by a grant recipient using grant money from the grant program must be designated as a Colorado agricultural product. The department of human services (department) is directed to administer and monitor the grant program. The bill repeals the grant program, effective September 1, 2026. The bill authorizes an allocation of money from the "Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act" (CARES Act) subfund in the general fund to the department for the grant program to meet expenses not approved as of March 27, 2020, and are necessary to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency. The appropriations must be expended on or before December 30, 2020. (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
