Grants Offered For Projects Designed To Boost Michigan Crops

LANSING (AP) – Grants of up to $100,000 are available for projects designed to boost the competitiveness of Michigan’s fruits, vegetables and other “specialty crops.”

The state Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is inviting proposals for funding that would be awarded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Projects could involve a variety of topics, from promotion, marketing and research to nutrition, trade enhancement, food safety and security, environmental concerns and more.

Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations; local, state and federal agencies; and for-profit organizations. Applications should show how the project would be expected to help the specialty crop industry as a whole as well as a particular product, institution or individual.

The deadline for applying is April 6.
