Approximately $1.5 million is expected to be available to agriculture industry associations, producer groups, processors, commodity commissions, non-profits, for-profits, and local government agencies in Oregon. ODA and the advisory committee are looking for innovative two-and-a-half-year proposals with a suggested funding range of $25,000 to $175,000. A list of priorities for funding is available online.
Proposals are due by January 29, 2021.
