MDAR Grant: APR Improvement Program – for APR farms – due June 8

Posted on May 23, 2016 // view all Grants & Loans

The APR Improvement Program (AIP) helps sustain active commercial farming on land that has already been protected through the Agricultural Preservation Restriction (APR) Program. AIP provides technical assistance and business analysis to improve farm productivity and profitability of APR farms selected to participate in the program. Grants from $25,000 up to $100,000 may be available on a reimbursement basis to implement identified on-farm infrastructure improvements. AIP funds are used primarily for capital improvements, such as constructing or repairing barns, farm stands, livestock housing, or processing facilities; or land management, such as reseeding hay fields, pasture improvements, fencing, or establishing perennial crops.

The deadline for submitting applications is Wednesday, June 8, 2016.
AIP applications are available at www.mass.gov/eea/agencies/agr/about/divisions/aip.html
