SMADC is pleased to offer the 8th round of our popular Farmer Mini-Grant Program. The grant opens July 15th, 2021 and closes September 1st, 2021. A total of $40,000 is available for this grant round. Successful grant recipients will be notified by October 15th, 2021.
The Farmer Mini-Grant Program was launched in FY’17 and has become more popular and competitive as each new round is offered. The program is open to applicants ages 16 and older, residing and farming in Anne Arundel, Calvert, Charles, Prince George’s or St. Mary’s counties. Grant awards are up to $2,000 per applicant, as a one-to-one match and can be used for a variety of projects. The Mini-Grant program is designed to assist new and beginning farmers who own or lease existing agricultural properties with small start-up projects, and to assist experienced farmers who are looking to diversify or expand a current agriculture project.
