County Farm Bureaus, Farm Bureau members and educators have until Jan. 31 to apply for an Indiana Farm Bureau ag education and promotion development grant.
The purpose of the program is to provide assistance to county Farm Bureaus, Farm Bureau members and educators who do not have adequate funds for a new program, activity, or to attend an event that would enhance the promotion of agriculture and education.
Indiana Farm Bureau will award grants of up to $250 to winning applicants. Eligible activities could include the National Ag in the Classroom Conference, AFBF Women’s Communication Boot Camp, summer educational programs or specialized educational conferences.
Generally speaking, the program or activity must be new, although existing programs or activities that are being significantly changed or expanded may also qualify. Individuals who would like to attend a conference or event must show the value of why they should attend the event and how it will enhance what they do.
A grant committee will review all applications and approve funds based on financial need and the potential impact of the program in reaching organizational goals.
Winners of the first round of grants will be announced at Spring Conference in March. The deadline for the second round of grants will be May 1.
