Value Added Producer Grants – Apply Now

From Senator Debbie Stabenow (MI) – Apply Now For Value Added Producer Grants Please note, this program is NOT just for Michigan Producers:

I wanted to let you know about an exciting new opportunity for Michigan producers, and co-ops. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is now accepting applications for competitive grants to help you expand your operations to include value-added products.

These Value-Added Producer Grants may be used for feasibility studies or business plans, working capital for marketing value-added agricultural products, and for farm-based renewable energy projects. The deadline to apply is August 29, 2011.

You can review eligibility rules and application procedures at http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-06-28/html/2011-16121.htm. You can submit your application online following the instructions at that website, or you can submit a paper application through the Michigan Rural Development Office. You can reach the Michigan office at (800) 944-8119 for more information as well.

If you would like a letter of support for your grant application or need other help, please feel free to contact one of my regional Senate offices: Flint, Saginaw, Bay, Thumb (810-720-4172); Mid-Michigan (517-203-1760); Northern Michigan (231-929-1031); Southeast Michigan (313-961-4330); Upper Peninsula (906-228-8756); or West Michigan (616-975-0052).

As always, please do not hesitate to contact my office if ever I can be of assistance to you or your family.

 

Sincerely,

Debbie Stabenow

United States Senator

  1. Hey there, I found your site beginningfarmers.org while browsing http://www.
    beginningfarmers.org/value-added-producer-grants-apply-now/.
    Have you ever contemplated incorporating a bit more than just text in your posts?
    Don’t get me wrong, your writing is excellent. However, I think that if you incorporated some other forms of media (such as videos, visuals, pictures) you could make your entries more substantive and attractive. Your page content is great, yet if you apply more diverse media, this site could undoubtedly be among the best in its area of interest in contrast to other sites on .
