Michigan Resilient Food Systems Infrastructure Program

Applications are due June 17, 2024.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is accepting applications for Resilient Food Systems Infrastructure (RFSI) program funding to build resilience in the middle of the food supply chain, to provide more and better markets to small farms and food businesses, to support the development of value-added products for consumers, fair prices, fair wages, and new and safe job opportunities. Funds will support expanded capacity for the aggregation, processing, manufacturing, storing, transporting, wholesaling, and distribution of locally and regionally produced food products, including specialty crops, dairy, grains for human consumption, aquaculture, and other food products, excluding meat and poultry. Matching infrastructure Grants are available with a maximum award of $475,000 and a 50% match requirement. Simplified Equipment-Only Grants provide $10,000 to $100,000 for the purchase of equipment, with no match required.
