MOFGA Technical Assistance Grants
MOFGA’s Technical Assistance (TA) Grants help farmers and food entrepreneurs access professional technical assistance (i.e., business planning; market research and development; production and scaling up assistance; and accessing new wholesale and institutional markets).
ELIGIBILITY and DESCRIPTION:
MOFGA’s two different sources of funding for 2021 TA Grants are reflected in the two funding pools to which you can apply.
- Funding Pool 1: Certified organic businesses with direct or wholesale markets. Certified organic farms and processors can apply for up to $2,000 technical assistance that is not limited to any specific market channel.
- These farms must have completed one of several types of farm business training programs or be able to document a clear barrier to accessing these programs.
- Funding Pool 2: Any farm accessing new wholesale or institutional markets. Farms of all production styles can apply for up to $1,000 technical assistance and related, allowable costs that are specific to accessing or scaling up wholesale and institutional markets.
Anyone who has received a past MOFGA TA Grant is ineligible.
