Grant Funding Available

The Colorado Department of Agriculture is making about $1 million in grant funding available for Colorado farmers, ranchers, food hubs and processors to support them in adjusting to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the food supply chain.

Colorado agricultural producers are eligible for grant awards up to $12,500. Farmers’ markets, food hubs, processors, and other intermediaries that support producers are eligible for up to $50,000.

The respond and rebuild grants will be administered by the independent Colorado Farm and Food Systems Respond and Rebuild Fund. To date, the fund has provided more than $370,000 to producers and intermediaries across Colorado, focusing on the needs and opportunities of small- and mid-size growers, beginning farmers and ranchers, veteran farmers, farmers of color, LGBTQ+ farmers, and female farmers — producers who are often underserved by public programs and projected to bear the brunt of the crisis’s impact.

Colorado Farm and Food Systems Respond and Rebuild Fund Grant Application are open now and will be accepted through Monday, November 9, 2020.
