NC AgVentures Farmer Grant Program
The North Carolina Agricultural Foundation Inc. is requesting a three-year NC AgVentures Grant on behalf of NC State Extension. The program would award cost-share grants to family farms to diversify, expand or enhance their agricultural operations. The overall goal is to increase farm profits. The program would benefit at least 150 family farms in 46 counties that were negatively impacted by the downturn in the tobacco economy.
