The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) anticipates awarding up to $750,000 through its Agricultural Growth, Research, and Innovation (AGRI) Meat, Poultry, Egg, and Milk Processing Grant program. The intent of the program is to increase sales of Minnesota-raised livestock products by investing in equipment and physical improvements that support processing, capacity, market diversification, and market access for meat, poultry, eggs, and milk. The maximum equipment award is $150,000, and the minimum award is $1,000. Individuals (including farmers), businesses, agricultural cooperatives, and local units of government may apply.
The application deadline is October 28, 2021.
