The purpose of the Homa Bay CNAP is to provide a framework for coordinated implementation of nutrition interventions by the government and nutrition stakeholders in Homa Bay County. It also provides an estimation of the total resources required to achieve the goal and objectives outlined in the Food and Nutrition Security policy. The cost estimates cover the three years (2022-2024) of implementation based on ideal situations and standard costing models. In general, the projected total cost for implementing the activities of the Plan for next three years is KSH 210,947,336.5

The Plan has been organized into chapters as follows: Chapter 1 is introduction whereby detailing the county profile, nutrition situation analysis, nutrition response, purpose of the CNAP and the main challenges. Chapter 2 spells out CNAP framework. Chapter 3 lists the Key Result Areas (KRAs) and implementation strategies.
