COUNTY FARM BUREAU GRANTS
Seventeen total grants will be awarded to county Farm Bureaus each calendar year. These grants are offered in the following tiered structure: three grants of $1,000; six grants of $750; eight grants of $500. Grants must support the following programs: classroom education, consumer awareness and/or leadership development. The purpose of the grant program is to support projects that will expand agricultural literacy. Grants are offered to county Farm Bureaus on a competitive basis with priority given to those programs demonstrating a need for financial support.
For detailed information on the grant program itself, download the GFB Foundation for Agriculture Grant Guidelines. We've compiled a list of some possible projects that could be eligible for grants, as well as a few things that would not be eligible. This is not a comprehensive list, but merely a starting point to help counties looking for ideas.
