Grants & Loans for Farmers

State and federal grant programs available to farmers are generally of three types: 1) Funding for on-farm research and demonstration projects; 2) Value-Added or Investment grants that require pre-application and cover a percentage of cost of a building or improvement project; or 3) Cost-sharing for expenditures that helped the farm expand, update, or otherwise improve operations.

Privately-funded grants have terms set by the funders, and these may vary widely. 

Current grant opportunities are posted on the MISA News Blog.
