The USDA Value Added Producer Grant provides agricultural producers with working capital to bring value-added products to market. These grants can range from less than $5,000 up to $250,000 and provide a dollar-for-dollar match to producers’ capital (for every dollar a producer spends, the USDA will match it with a dollar). Staff from the USDA and NABC will present this FREE program.
A panel of past USDA VAPG grant awardees will share their experiences about the application and project implementation process. There will be plenty of time for questions, answers, and general discussion, as well as suggestions for “next steps.”
Fee includes lunch and refreshments.
