Grants Address Family Farming Issues

The mission of Farm Aid is to keep family farmers on their land. Farm Aid supports nonprofit organizations that work to maintain a family farm system of agriculture and that promote solutions to the challenges facing rural communities. Grants are awarded in the following categories: Growing the Good Food Movement, with emphasis on encouraging new markets for family farmers; Helping Farmers Thrive, including assisting farmers to transition to more sustainable farming practices; and Taking Action to Change the System, which focuses on promoting fair farm policies.
Applications for grants from $1,000 to $40,000 are due on August 31, annually. Grant program details are available on the Farm Aid website.
