Grant Writing

There are great ideas out there for innovative agricultural businesses. There are also great grant programs for agricultural innovators. For connecting these two, we’re helping out with grant writing workshops across Wisconsin.

Join us for a workshop designed to help you identify which grants or other financial options might be right for you. This workshop will discuss ways to plan your project and strengthen your application. Specific grant programs to be covered include:

  • USDA’s Value Added Producer Grant (VAPG) program provides planning and working capital funds to farmers and farmer-based enterprises to develop and implement value-added ventures.
  • USDA’s Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) grant program funds research, marketing and demonstration projects.
  • USDA’s Specialty Crop Block Grant (SCBG) program funds endeavors that enhance the competitiveness of Wisconsin Specialty Crops
