Other Resources for Funding

An excellent place to start is the USDA Small Farm Funding Resources. This guide contains information about funding sources for beginning farmers, training, technical assistance contacts, organizations with resources and programs for beginning and experienced farmers, and more.

USDA's Alternative Farming Systems Information Center has compiled a list of useful resources and contacts that you should explore.

Building Sustainable Farms, Ranches and Communities and NSAC's Grassroots Guide to Federal Farm and Food Programs both offer information on federal grants and programs. These two guides can help you find programs that may fit your project. The FSA Microloan Program is a newer program that is typically easier to qualify for and access than some of the other grant and loan programs.

Also useful are the ATTRA publications Financing Your Farm: Guidance for Beginning Farmers and Federal Conservation Resources for Sustainable Farming and Ranching.

Finally, ATTRA posts funding opportunities on a weekly basis, providing nationwide and regional funding resources for farmers, businesses, and organizations.
