Permalink Federal-State Marketing Improvement Program Grants Announced

USDA logoUSDA will award matching grants for 22 projects under the Federal-State Marketing Improvement Program to help create economic opportunities for American farmers and ranchers. USDA will match nearly $1.2 million in grants for state departments of agriculture and state universities in 18 states and the District of Columbia. The projects will enable states to research new opportunities, and spark innovation in the marketing, transportation and distribution of U.S. agricultural products. More than half of the 22 projects focus on increasing sales of value-added meat products, aquaculture products, and fresh and processed produce in local and regional food systems. Visit www.ams.usda.gov/FSMIP for a list of this year's projects.
