The North Dakota Department of Agriculture administers the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant program. To be eligible for a grant, the project must solely enhance the competitiveness of North Dakota specialty crops in either domestic or foreign markets. Projects must also benefit more than one commercial product, organization, or individual. Examples can include education, research, food safety, pest and plant health, marketing and promotion, and production. North Dakota is encouraging applicants to address particular issues that are identified in the Request for Applications. NDDA anticipates that up to $2.4 million will be awarded to projects solely enhancing the competiveness of North Dakota specialty crops. Non-profit and for-profit organizations; local, state, and federal government entities, including tribal governments; and public or private colleges and universities are eligible to apply.
Applications are due by April 20, 2017.
