Hello Oregon Farm to CNP Education Grantees!

Thank you for all you have done this year on the front lines of keeping Oregon communities healthy and kids nourished. The stories and images we have heard and seen of the invaluable work you and your teams have achieved during this unique time have been inspiring, to say the least. We know it has been challenging, not only professionally, but personally as well, and we extend our most sincere gratitude for making the time to complete this year-end report. The information you provide is vital. 

Using the information you are about to provide, the Oregon State Legislature considers whether or not to fund the ODE Farm to CNP Grant program each biennium. Your accurate and thoughtful responses to these questions play a crucial role in that decision process, and largely determines the amount of funding, if any, you will have available to purchase Oregon foods and/or provide garden and nutrition education in the coming school years.  

Additionally, among the goals of the ODE Farm to CNP team is to administer the grant in a way that takes into consideration the opinions and ideas of those we serve. Your honest feedback and specific suggestions give us that opportunity. 

Thank you in advance for making the time to provide this critical information.

The final report is mandatory, and required of all grantees of the ODE Farm to CNP Education Grant. The due date is September 30, 2021.

The report should take about 30 minutes to complete. The Final Report should be completed by the current Project Director for the Oregon Farm to CNP Education Grant. It may be helpful for you to review your original grant application as the questions referred to in the report are from that  application. You may also want to refer to your progress report. You will be asked to provide a summary of your project, activities completed, and quantifiable outcomes for the entire grant period July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2021. Please use names of individuals and/or organizations instead of personal pronouns. For example use the name of the district or farm, rather than "they" or "we".

If you have any questions, or need to request a copy of your original application, please contact the ODE Farm to CNP team, at FarmtoCNP@ode.state.or.us
