2023 Specialty Crop Block Grant Program

February 02, 2023

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 $338,000 from the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program contingent on funding availability. The allocation is 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 $100,000 lasting two to three years that can justify larger impacts and the need for additional funding. The deadline for applications is March 31, 2023 at 5:00 pm. Applications received after this time will not be considered. Applications may be emailed to michelle.macdonald@wyo.gov (please see application submission instructions on website).
