NC AgVentures Grant Opportunity for Family Farms
NC AgVentures, a NC Cooperative Extension program provides grants to
NC farmers for new and innovative agricultural project ideas that will
increase farm profits.
NC AgVentures program, which is supported by the NC Tobacco Trust
Fund Commission, will award a minimum of 20 grants to agriculturally
dependent farm families. Applications will be accepted from
farmers in: Forsyth, Stokes, Surry, Rockingham, Yadkin, Guilford, Martin,
Wilson, Pitt, Edgecombe, Nash, Sampson, Lenoir, Duplin, Wayne, Harnett,
Greene, Johnston counties. NC AgVentures will grant award up to $10,000.
The FINAL application deadline is January 5, 2018, but producers must
collaborate with a N.C. Cooperative Extension Agent on their application, so
earlier submission is necessary.
There will be an informational meeting:
Monday, November 13th
6:00 - 7:00 PM
N.C. Cooperative Extension, Forsyth County Center
1450 Fairchild Road, Winston-Salem
