Local Farm Grant

ANCA's new Local Farm Grant* provides seed or refinancing capital to improve farm viability by addressing gaps in the local food supply chain, increasing opportunity for value-added processing or securing business development services.

To foster farm viability in northern New York, ANCA is offering grants ranging between $2,500-$45,000 to assist local farmers, producers/entrepreneurs, food hubs, and cooperatives interested in expanding, diversifying, or niching their business in economically distressed counties of northern NY. 

Proposals are due by November 30, 2019. 

See the Request for Proposals

* Thank you to the generous donors whose gift of $100,000 has made this grant opportunity possible. These donors have challenged the ANCA community to match their gift through the Local Farm Challenge. Join the Challenge today!
