We would appreciate your help in reminding your farmer contacts that we support two programs for which they may qualify for individual cost-share assistance from $3,000 to $8,000.
-Both the WNC AgOptions program and Tobacco Communities Reinvestment Fund are now accepting applications. Farmers can apply for small grants that will support innovative ideas designed to increase their farm income.
-Current and former tobacco farmers receive priority.
-The TCRF program is targeting specific counties (a list can be found at their website) while AgOptions targets 22 WNC counties.
-Informational meetings and how to apply workshops are planned at various locations in the state.
