MDAR Grant: Farm Viability Enhancement Program – due June 8

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

This popular business planning and technical assistance program provides management advice and grants from $25,000 up to $100,000 to implement farm growth and sustainability strategies. Farm operators not only receive upfront cash awards for signing a 5 or 10 year Agricultural Covenant, but also receive valuable consultations and visits from a team of experts to discuss farm production and management, marketing, and business planning. Typical uses of funds from the Farm Viability Program include building or repairing farm structures, modernizing field equipment, purchasing delivery vehicles and tractors, and improving retail marketing structures or food processing capacity.

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