FUNDING: Micro-Grants for BIPOC Farmers
Organic Farmers Association and the Rodale Institute partner on an annual micro-grant program specifically targeted to support small-scale BIPOC* farmers, whether organic, transitioning to organic, or aspiring organic farmers.
Grant funding is focused on needs such as tools, equipment, training, consulting, or anything that ensures the farmer’s success. Funding should have the potential to positively impact a farmer’s transition to organic, allow them to better market their products, or solve a particular problem that is typically un-fundable through normal operational or lending strategies. Projects that have a high potential for impact on the individual farm and/or the communities they serve will be given the highest priority.
OPENS JANUARY 1 and CLOSES FEBRUARY 28
