The National Young Farmers Coalition is launching a new grant program to help young and beginning farmers and ranchers start up and grow their businesses. In 2020, Young Farmers will provide 50 farmers and ranchers with $5,000 grants. Grant recipients will also receive a one-year membership to the National Young Farmers Coalition. This fund can be used for anything that will further applicants’ goals as farmers, even if that means just getting started. The goal of this fund is to provide financial assistance for any cost that currently limits farmers’ ability to start, run, or grow their operation in the way they’d like.
Applications are due March 29, 2020.
