Permalink Guide Helps Producers Applying for Value-Added Grant Program

The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition has updated its Farmers' Guide to Applying for the Value-Added Producer Grant Program. The online guide helps producers navigate the application process for USDA's Value-Added Producer Grant Program (VAPG). USDA Rural Development, which administers the program, will issue at least $18 million in competitive grant funds this fiscal year. VAPG funds can be used for working capital, feasibility studies, business plans, and for marketing efforts to establish viable value-added businesses. Individual producers and groups of producers, as well as farmer coops and producer-controlled businesses, are eligible to apply for these grants.
