Michigan Awards Grants to Advance and Diversify Food and Ag Businesses

The Michigan Commission of Agriculture and Rural Development recently voted to approve Food and Agriculture Investment Fund grants for six food and agriculture projects. This new round of grants will help increase the use of Michigan milk and cream, support the state’s potato and forest products industries, lead to increased food manufacturing, and support production and processing of diverse grains in Michigan. With these projects, the Commission has approved 24 projects this fiscal year, leading to hundreds of new jobs and millions of dollars of new private investment in the food, agriculture, and forest products sectors of Michigan.
