This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Background and Purpose
Section 4402 of the Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008 (Pub. L. 110-246) amended section 25 of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 which requires that the Secretary of Agriculture provide a grant to a nonprofit organization to establish and support a healthy urban food enterprise development center. The purpose of the HUFED Center is to increase access to healthy, affordable foods, including locally produced agricultural products, to underserved communities. The HUFED Center will provide training and technical assistance for healthy food enterprises and award sub-grants to eligible entities for healthy food enterprise development. The HUFED Center shall provide two main functions: (1) Provide for training and technical assistance (T&TA) for healthy food enterprises; and (2) implement a competitive sub-grant program for healthy food enterprises.
The HUFED Center was created to respond to the need to redevelop a food enterprise structure in the United States in order to make more healthy, affordable food available in low-income areas, to improve access for small and mid-sized agricultural producers, and to promote the positive economic activities generated from attracting food enterprises into underserved communities.
The estimated amount available for support of this program in FY 2009 is $900,000. The eligibility criteria for the project and applicants, and the application forms and associated instructions needed to apply for a HUFED Center award can be accessed through the Grants.gov Web site at http://www.grants.gov.Start Signature
Done at Washington, DC, this 28th day of July 2009.
