Choose Iowa Value-Added Grants

Applications are due December 15, 2023.
These cost-share grants leverage additional private investment and were created to assist Iowa farmers, businesses, and nonprofits with their efforts to increase or diversify their agricultural product offerings, expand markets, and shorten the supply chain. Eligible applicants are Iowa individuals, businesses, agricultural cooperatives, nonprofit organizations, or local governments. These grants help identify, evaluate, and financially support programs and services that add value to agricultural products, enable new technologies, and support alternative marketing strategies. Projects should increase sales of Iowa agricultural products by increasing production capacity or expanding market access for value-added projects.
