Vermont Produce Safety Improvement Grants

January 31

Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets has announced that approximately $60,000 in funding provided through the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program and the Castanea Foundation, LLC will be available in the third round of the Produce Safety Improvement Grant. Because of the federal funding source, this round will focus on safety improvements that include materials, supplies, and labor but cannot fund construction or construction supplies. Eligible projects include harvest, wash, pack, and storage materials and supplies, as well as storage monitoring/control devices; health and hygiene projects such as handwashing stations, cleaning/sanitization tools, signage, compost/manure handling improvements; and training and record-keeping materials and systems.
Applications are due by January 31, 2019.
