Healthy soil in hands

Massachusetts Soil Health Support Minigrants

Applications are due by March 1, 2024.
This program provides minigrants of up to $1,500 to producers in Massachusetts to overcome specific, clearly-defined obstacles to implementing soil health goals. Suggested categories include: modifying or upgrading implements, purchasing soil covers or soil carbon inputs, improving cover crop practices, hiring a consultant, or other specific needs related to soil health obstacles. Applicants who are advanced in their soil health practices may opt to answer a few additional questions to apply for an additional $1,000 Soil Health Innovators Award. Applications are limited to farmers who have completed the Massachusetts Coordinated Soil Health Program’s Producer Survey.
