— Written By Paul Westfall

The AgVentures program is accepting applications from farmers to help them implement new and innovative project ideas that will help increase farm profitability and diversify farm operations. Granville County farmers are eligible to apply for these funds. Grants awards can be made up to $8,000. The application deadline is January 14, 2020.

For more information on the AgVentures grant program, go to AgVentures. There is a sample application form that can be used to get the information together that will be needed on the application, and the link to the online application can be found there.

There is also a workshop presentation that applicants can review before completing their application.

Funding for this program is from the NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission. Grant ideas that help current or former tobacco growers to diversify their operations or establish new enterprises will help this program continue into the future.
