USDA Grants Due May 14, 2015

Two USDA Grant Opportunities 

As one of Food Well Alliance's local food grant applicants, we thought you would be interested in two different grant opportunities from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that seek to support the development and expansion of local and regional food through business enterprises, domestic consumption, local food access and market opportunities for farm and ranch operations.

The Farmers Market Promotion Program and the Local Food Promotion Program are unique in that you can apply for either a "planning" or "implementation" grant depending the stage of your project idea. 


Click on the links below to find everything you need on the USDA websites to put together your winning grant proposal. 

LOCAL FOOD
Have a great idea but not sure it will work? You can apply for the "planning" project for either Farmers Market Promotion or Local Food Promotion to complete market research, feasibility studies or business planning for
$5,000 - $25,000.

Have you already completed your plan and are now ready to get started? You can apply for the "implementation" project for $25,000 - $100,000.
FARMERS MARKET
Both grants are due May 14, 2015. Any questions can be directed to:
