News from the Wyoming Department of Ag:
The Wyoming Department of Agriculture is accepting applications for the Wyoming Specialty Crop Grant Program contingent on funding availability. This year, the WDA is estimated to receive up to $340,000 from the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program. The allocation is to be used to enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops in Wyoming by increasing the production and consumption of fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, horticulture and floriculture.
Competitive grant awards will be considered up to a maximum of $24,500 for specialty crop projects lasting one to two years. In addition we will consider projects up to $100,000 lasting up to three years that can justify larger impacts and the need for additional funding. The application and grant manual is available at the Department of Agriculture’s website: https://agriculture.wy.gov/divisions/nrp/specialty-crop-program.
Applications may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be accepted in word format only (.doc/.docx). The deadline for applications is March 31, 2022 at 12:00pm. Applications received after this time will not be considered. If you have any questions, please contact Michelle MacDonald at 307-777-7323 or email@example.com.
