Vermont Specialty Crop Block Grants

The deadline for submitting a pre-application is February 28, 2023.
The Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets announced the availability of $200,000 in grant funds to strengthen Vermont’s specialty crop industries and producer associations. Grant funds will enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops by (1) leveraging efforts to market and promote specialty crops, (2) assisting producers with research and development, (3) expanding availability and access to specialty crops, or (4) addressing local, regional, and national challenges for producers. Any entity may apply, but projects must benefit more than one specialty crop business, individual, or organization.
