Minnesota Sustainable Agriculture Demonstration Grant Program

Applications are due by December 7, 2023.
Minnesota’s Agricultural Growth, Research, and Innovation (AGRI) Sustainable Agriculture Demonstration Grant Program funds innovative projects that explore the energy efficiency, environmental benefits, or profitability of sustainable agricultural techniques or systems, from production through marketing. Applicants may request up to $50,000 per project. The first $25,000 does not need to be matched by the applicants. For requests between $25,000 and $50,000, applicants must provide a dollar-for-dollar match on the amount above $25,000. Projects may last two to three years and need to take place on Minnesota farms, and grantees must be willing to share what they learn with others.
