The Delaware Department of Agriculture is accepting proposals for Specialty Crop Block Grant Program funds to support projects that enhance the competitiveness of Delaware’s specialty crop industry, sustain the livelihood of Delaware farmers, and strengthen Delaware’s economy. Individual producers, producer groups, organizations, associations, and state and local organizations, academia, and other specialty crops stakeholders are eligible to apply either as single entities or in combined efforts. Proposals submitted by individual producers must demonstrate that the project’s potential impact will accrue to a broader group of similar producers, regions, or industry segments. Competitive grants will be awarded for projects between $5,000 and $50,000.
Proposals are due by April 20, 2021.
