Value Added Producer Grant Program Outreach Webinar

Friday, May 6, 2016

The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition is partnering with USDA Rural Development to hold a webinar on the Value-Added Producer Grant program for prospective applicants and groups who work with farmers and ranchers.

The webinar takes place on Friday, May 6 from 1:00 to 2:30 CT at www.ReadyTalk.com. The Conference ID/Passcode is 9268341.

Participants will need to use their computer's audio and the "Chat" feature instead of phone lines. There will not be a phone dial in option. 

The webinar will be helpful for prospective applicants and for organizations who work with applicants. Topics covered include program and funding history of the Value Added Producer Grant, an overview of the program, information about eligibility, applications requirements, the evaluation and scoring criteria, examples of funded projects, and "plenty of time for nitty gritty questions," according to NSAC.

You can check out NSAC's 2016 Farmers' Guide to Applying for the Value-Added Producer Grant Program for help as well. If you need more information, please contact Wes King, wking@sustainableagriculture.net.

The Center for Rural Affairs is proud to be a founding member of the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition.
