Loudoun County Farm Bureau will award up to two grants, each for up to $5,000, for projects designed to improve or expand local agricultural production capabilities or consumer access, and general programs or projects that improve Loudoun’s agriculture industry.
Loudoun County Farm Bureau recognizes the need to invest in Loudoun’s rural economy.
“Now, more than ever we realize the need for a sustainable, local food supply, and Farm Bureau is thrilled to invest in the innovative minds of our local community that will bring that to life,” said Chris Van Vlack, president of the organization.
The 2020 Agriculture Innovation Grant Program is open to residents of Loudoun County with innovative solutions to the agriculture industry’s biggest challenges. Preference will be given to projects with a long-term impact; applicants must provide at least 50% of the total funding for the project. Completed applications are due by July 15.
