Colorado Department of Agriculture is accepting concept proposals for $700,000 in Specialty Crop Block Grants available through USDA funding. Priorities for Colorado’s specialty crop program include supporting the next generation of farmers and ranchers, scaling‐up high‐value agriculture and diverse market opportunities, and promoting and incentivizing soil, water, and climate stewardship. Producer groups, organizations, and associations, as well as state and local organizations, educational institutions, and other specialty crops stakeholders are eligible to apply either as single entities or in combined efforts.
