America's Farmers Grow Communities Project
Through the America's Farmers Grow Communities program,
farmers enroll for a chance to direct $5,000 awards to
local nonprofit organizations that are important to them
and their communities.
Funds must be used for the following types of programs:
- Future Farmers of America
- School STEM programs
- Food and nutrition programs
- Science outreach programs
- Maternal, child, reproductive health support programs
- Public health programs
This program is designed for farmers who live in one of
the eligible counties, are 21 years or older, and
actively engaged in farming at least 250 acres. A farmer
is considered "actively engaged in farming" if he or she
performs the work on the farm, or hires and actively
manages others who do so.
Amount of funding
One nonprofit organization in each eligible county may
receive a $5,000 award.
The number of expected awards by state are listed in
section 13 of the
official rules web page.
