National Good Food Network Cluster Call: Sept 17 3:30-5:00 PM ET
Funding Opportunities from USDA
This Thursday, the National Good Food Network is hosting its monthly, interactive webinar that gives you the opportunity to learn and connect with on-the-ground practitioners and experts dedicated to scaling up and increasing access to good food.
This month, you’ll have a unique opportunity to communicate directly with several key people at the USDA about upcoming funding opportunities.
Debra Tropp, Branch Chief, Marketing Services Division, USDA Agricultural Marketing Service, will moderate a panel of grant managers from across USDA representing a number of grants, including the Value-Added Producer Grant Program, Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program, Rural Development Business Program, opportunities for minority and limited-resource producers, and others. Each program manager will give a brief overview of their program, and the remainder of the call will be open to your questions.
***Note: In an effort to respond to as many of your questions as possible, we request that you review the grant program materials on our site and email us your questions before the call. The deadline for submitting questions via email is Tuesday, September 15; priority will be given to questions submitted via email, though you may have the opportunity to pose questions on the call.
Feel free to forward this to colleagues!
