Farmers Advocating for Organic Program – Sep 1

Posted by Organic Valley on July 9, 2019

Organic Valley is accepting LOIs for its Farmers Advocating for Organic program.

The largest farmer-fund grant program in the U.S. and one of the few focused solely on organic, the FAO program seeks to address the long-term needs of the organic marketplace and the future of organic agriculture by supporting the development of long-term solutions.

To that end, grants ranging between $5,000 and $50,000 will be awarded in support of research, education and advocacy projects designed to protect and promote the organic industry and the livelihood of organic farmers.

The program currently prioritizes projects within the following categories:

  • Understanding Organic — Projects that result in broader consumer and public understanding of the benefits of organic food and farming.
  • Cultivating CROPP Cooperative Community — Projects that strengthen CROPP Cooperative by building community among and between farmers and employees.

Nonprofit organizations and academic/research institutions are eligible to apply.

Letters of Intent will be reviewed and responded to within two weeks. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by September 1, 2019.

See the Organic Valley website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: September 1, 2019 (Letters of Intent)
