In 2020 The National Young Farmers Coalition (Young Farmers) launched a new grant program to help young and beginning farmers and ranchers start up and grow their businesses. The program provided 50 farmers and ranchers with $5,000 grants in the spring of 2020. Grant recipients also received a one-year membership to the National Young Farmers Coalition.
Now in their third year of the program, Young Farmers Coalition will once again offer 50 grants in 2022 to a new cohort of young farmers and ranchers. Forty-five awards will go to businesses already in operation, and five to projects starting in 2022.
Applications will close on January 28, 2022 at 3pm EST. Late applications will not be accepted for any reason, so plan to submit your application well before the deadline.
