Iowa Local Food Purchasing Assistance Program (ILFPA)

Iowa was awarded 2.7 million dollars through USDA AMS as part of the “Build Back Better” initiative to create the ILFPA. 

This program, managed by Iowa Valley RC&D will allocate 1.8 million dollars to farmers for food grown, raised and processed in Iowa and distribute that food to underserved communities throughout the state.  Additional information for farmers, food distribution partners, and stakeholders on this program can be found here:
