FY 2021 VAPG FUNDING AWARDED
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development recently announced grant awards for the FY 2021 Value-Added Producer Grant and Morrison was pleased to have assisted ten clients in securing a collective $2.5MM in grant funding.
The Value-Added Producer Grant aims to help individual farmers and ranchers, agricultural cooperatives, and agricultural producer groups expand value-added activities. Generating new products, creating and expanding marketing opportunities, and increasing producer income are the end goals of this program. Applicants last year applied for up to $250,000 to support direct marketing opportunities and up to $75,000 for marketing planning projects.
Included among the ten Morrison clients who were awarded funding was Farmers Brewing Company, featured in our latest Client Success Story.
The full award list is available here.
