Rodale Institute, Organic Farmers Assn. Small-Scale Organic Micro-Grants For Farmers Who Are Black, Indigenous, Or People Of Color
Berks County-based Rodale Institute, in partnership with Organic Farmers Association, offers a micro-grant program specifically targeted to support small-scale farmers who are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color, whether they are organic, transitioning to organic, or an aspiring organic farmer.
Applications are due March 31.
Grant funding is focused on needs such as tools, equipment, training, consulting, or anything that ensures the farmer’s success.
Funding should have the potential to positively impact a farmer’s transition to organic, allow them to better market their products, or solve a particular problem that is typically un-fundable through normal operational or lending strategies.
Projects that have a high potential for impact on the individual farm and/or the communities they serve will be given the highest priority.
For more information on programs, initiatives, upcoming events and help for farmers to improve soil health and for regenerative agriculture, visit the Rodale Institute website.
