$30 Million Available From USDA

 Haying1

The United States Department of Agriculture is making $30 million available to food producers, ranchers, and farmers to develop new product lines though funding from the Value-Added Producer Grant (VAPG) program. The Value-Added Producer Grant program helps agricultural producers enter into value-added activities related to the processing and/or marketing of bio-based, value-added products. Generating new products, creating and expanding marketing opportunities, and increasing producer income are the goals of this program. Applications from independent producers, agricultural producer groups, cooperative framers or ranchers and majority-controlled producer-based business ventures will be accepted through July 2, 2015 for electronic entries and July 7, 2015 for paper applications.

For more information visit the USDA and Farmers Hotline websites.

You may also contact your local office for assistance.
