The Pre-Application is the first stage in the Food Distribution Assistance Program application process. Organizations must complete the Pre-Application to be eligible to move to the next stage.

Golden LEAF had two Pre-Application windows, November 1 through November 15 and January 23 through February 7. 

Organizations that submitted a Pre-Application will receive an update on their status by February 17. If you have not received an update, or have questions about your organization’s status, please reach out to

At this time, Golden LEAF does not anticipate opening a third Pre-Application window.
