Since we believe in the importance of this 2014 front page story on Agriculture Farm Transition/Viability Grants Awards, it is now archived here.
Here’s an excerpt:
“Designed to increase farm production, promote Connecticut Grown products and create jobs, the funding – which requires a match from the grantee – will leverage nearly $2.4 million in investments.
“Grants were awarded on a competitive basis and a match must be supplied by the applicant. The Department of Agriculture’s share of the budget is capped at $49,999 in matching funds.
“Funding is not limited to producers. Non-profit organizations and municipalities also are eligible, and may use the grants for town or regional planning purposes provided that agricultural components are involved.”
Can’t wait to see what grows and shows up next.
“For all things come from earth, and all things end by becoming earth.”
