Build Your Business with USDA Grants

The US Department of Agriculture is taking applications for the Value-Added Grant Program. Grants help farmers/ranchers or marketing partnerships develop and sell value-added agricultural products.

Planning grants ($100,000) and Working Capital grants ($300,000) are available. Matching cash or in-kind funds are required for both. Proposals are due October 15, 2012.
