USDA Rural Development Value-Added Producer Grants Available

In Agribusiness, Agricultural Entrepreneurship, Agricultural Marketing on October 16, 2009 at 8:41 pm

Check this out: http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/rbs/coops/applicants.htm.

You can go to this Web site to learn how to apply for up to $300,000 in funding for working capital or up to $100,000 in research in the form of grants from USDA. You must be a producer, producer group, producer co-op or producer-owned business to qualify. In addition, 50 percent of the raw material used in the value-added product you are selling must come from you, the owners.

If you have questions about this grant, you can contact me for assistance at 316-305-8358. I have written several of these successfully for Kansas farmers and farmer-owned businesses. The due date is November 30.
