Specialty Crop Grant 2018 PDF Print E-mail

The Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) is now accepting applications for the Wyoming Specialty Crop Grant Program. 

This year, the WDA is estimated to receive up to $300,000 from the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program contingent on funding availability.  The allocation is to be used solely 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 the WDA will consider projects up to $50,000 lasting up to three years that can justify larger impacts and the need for additional funding. The deadline for applications is March 23, 2018.
