Farm Fund, Next Step grant application deadline Jan. 18

Dec 4th, 2018 | Category: News

BELLINGHAM – The Community Food Co-op Farm Fund  is now accepting Next Step grant and Farm Fund grant applications for 2019. Both grants have a deadline of Jan. 18, 2019.

Farm Fund grants are directed to projects that benefit the local food system, farmers and sustainable agriculture at large (programs, workshops, trials, multi-farm collaborations etc.). The purpose of the Next Step grants is to help qualifying farmers successfully overcome the challenges of farm expansion for wholesale markets in Whatcom County. Farm Fund secured low interest loans can be paired with applications for Next Step grants. Farmers can apply for a loan without applying for a Next Step grant.

The grant application forms and Farm Fund secured loan information will be posted on the Co-op website (www.communityfood.coop). All Farm Fund applications are available in Spanish.

For more information, contact Jean Rogers, Board and Farm Fund Administrator, at jeanr@communityfood.coop or 360-734-8158 x 311.
