The National Young Farmers Coalition is offering 50 Young Farmer Grants of $5,000 each to a new cohort of young farmers and ranchers: 45 awards will go to businesses already in operation, and five to projects starting in 2021. Young Farmer Grants are designed to provide a flexible financial boost to young farmers building long-term careers in agriculture. This fund can be used for anything that will further your goals as a farmer, even if that means just getting started. Applicants must be young farmers and ranchers between 18 and 40 years of age as of April 1, 2021. A minimum of 50% of grants are committed to Black, Indigenous, and other people of color, and 50% of grants to female-identifying, non-binary, and trans farmers, not mutually exclusively.
Applications are due by January 15, 2021.
