DATCP Accepting Applications for Second Round of 2021
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/10/2021

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture is accepting applications for a second round of 2021 Specialty Crop Block Grants. The agency encourages non-profit organizations, producer groups, government agencies, universities, and other agricultural organizations to apply.

Projects that focus on enhancing the competitiveness of specialty crop industries through research, education, or market development are eligible. Specialty crops include fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, nursery crops, herbs, and more. Find a full list of eligible crops and more information about the program at www.ams.usda.gov/scbgp.

Coordinators say applications may involve collaborations or partnerships between entities and are due to DATCP by October 29.

DATCP will use a competitive review process to select the most qualified projects, with priority for projects featuring a COVID-19 relief component. The department will include the projects in Wisconsin's state plan and submit this to the U.S. Department of Agriculture for approval and funding. Projects can receive grant funds for up to three years in duration.

Grant information and application materials are available at https://datcp.wi.gov/Pages/Growing_WI/SpecialtyCrops.aspx
