The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection is accepting proposals for the 2017 Specialty Crop Multi-State Program. A federal grant program offered by USDA Agricultural Marketing Service, the purpose of the SCMP is to competitively award funds to projects that enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops by funding collaborative, multi-state projects that address regional or national level specialty crop issues, including food safety, plant pests and disease, research; crop-specific projects addressing common issues; and marketing and promotion. Grant awards will range from $250,000 to $1 million per project and projects may last for up to three years. Specialty-crop producer associations and groups, state government agencies, Tribal government entities, universities, nonprofits, and other stakeholder organizations are eligible to apply. All SCMP proposals must include at least two partners with substantive involvement in the project, and the multi-state partners must be located in two different states.
Proposals are due by September 25, 2017.
