Tennessee Agriculture Enterprise Fund will award grants to starting or expanding agricultural, food, and forestry businesses; farmers, nonprofits, local governments, and other entities in Tennessee, or those whose project will be located in Tennessee. Successful grant recipients must demonstrate a strong potential for impact on local farm income, access to markets, increased capacity, or agricultural innovation. Priority will be given to businesses located in at-risk counties, distressed counties, and adjoining counties. Applications are reviewed on a quarterly basis.
The next application deadline is April 1, 2019.
