Pennsylvania Commonwealth Specialty Crop Grants

Proposals must be received by April 19, 2024.
Pennsylvania is accepting proposals for $460,000 in 2024 Commonwealth Specialty Crop Block Grants to stimulate market growth or boost the competitive position for high-priority crops. Specialty crops eligible for the program and deemed high-priority include hardwoods; honey; hemp and flax for fiber; and hops, barley, rye and wheat for brewing, distilling, and malting. Also targeted for priority funding are crops not eligible for funding through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Specialty Crop Block Grant Program.
