FUNDING AVAILABLE: VHCB announces 3 grant application deadlines for water quality and infrastructure improvement projects

The Vermont Farm & Forest Viability Program, a program of the Vermont Housing & Conservation Board, has grant funds available for farmers to complete capital improvement projects. Eligible farmers can apply for Water Quality Grants or Dairy Improvement Grants, both of which provide grants of $5,000 to $40,000. Matching funds are required for both programs and may include federal or state grants as well as cash or loans. We will hold three competitive grant rounds, with the first upcoming deadline on August 13, 2018. Visit the Viability Program Grants Page to learn more about both grant opportunities and to the applications for each.
