Description

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing its intention to award a cooperative agreement to the Illinois Institute of Technology's Institute for Food Safety and Health (IFSH). This agreement aims to support the IFSH in carrying out multidisciplinary applied research projects related to food safety and nutrition. The IFSH will conduct research on preventive control measures, food processing and packaging technologies, and the impact of these strategies on the nutritional quality of food. The agreement also aims to facilitate collaboration among government agencies, universities, and the food industry to develop practical solutions to food safety issues. Additionally, the IFSH will engage with stakeholders to develop training and outreach programs, identify research needs, and promote the use of research findings. The overall goal is to support the implementation of the FDA's new Human Foods Program Science and Research Strategic Plan and enhance food safety practices. The funding for this cooperative agreement is set at $10,000,000, with an expected number of one award. The opportunity is open only to the Illinois Institute of Technology's Institute for Food Safety and Health. For more information, please refer to the funding opportunity announcement.

Flexible Funding Model-Infrastructure Development and Maintenance for State Manufactured Food Regulatory Programs (U2F) Clinical Trials Not Allowed
Food and Drug Administration
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is offering a federal grant for the Flexible Funding Model-Infrastructure Development and Maintenance for State Manufactured Food Regulatory Programs (U2F). This grant aims to support the advancement of a nationally Integrated Food Safety System (IFSS) by assisting state manufactured food regulatory programs in achieving and maintaining conformance with the Manufactured Food Regulatory Program Standards (MFRPS). The MFRPS are designed to ensure that state manufactured food regulatory programs implement a high-quality regulatory framework that emphasizes mutual reliance and enhances food safety. These program standards provide a uniform basis for measuring and improving the performance of manufactured food regulatory programs in the United States, with the goal of reducing foodborne illness hazards in food manufacturing facilities. In addition to the MFRPS, the grant also supports other initiatives such as the Food Protection Task Force (FPTF), which aims to establish and/or support a statewide food protection system that addresses specific needs and maximizes public health protection. The FPTF promotes collaboration and cooperation among federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial agencies, industry, academia, and consumers to improve food safety. Furthermore, the grant includes funding for the development of state-driven dietary supplement regulatory frameworks and programs. The objective is to advance the adoption and implementation of current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) for Dietary Supplements Rule, with a focus on training and program development activities. Lastly, the grant offers support for special projects that promote innovation and integration in the IFSS using the MFRPS framework. These projects address emerging food safety priorities and require sharing project deliverables and resources with other programs. The grant is open to state, tribal, and territorial manufactured food regulatory programs that meet the eligibility requirements, including having a long-term food nonpublic information sharing agreement with the FDA or agreeing to enter into such an agreement. The funding tracks include MFRPS Development and MFRPS Maintenance, with different funding levels and options based on the number of years of funding received under past MFRPS cooperative agreements. Applicants are encouraged to apply for cooperative agreement assistance that aligns with their jurisdiction's needs in terms of funding amounts and project years. The grant has an award ceiling of $1,285,000 and an award floor of $340,000, with an expected number of four awards to be granted.
