USDA Value Added Grant Writing Workshop

Donald Nunn, USDA Rural Development Cooperative Loan Specialist, will present at an Adams State Community Partnerships hosted workshop, Wednesday, May 4, 2016. Attendees will learn how they may be eligible and how to apply for a USDA value added grant.

The Value Added Producer Grants (VAPG) program helps agricultural producers enter into value-added activities related to the processing and/or marketing of bio-based, value-added products. Generating new products, creating and expanding marketing opportunities, and increasing producer income are the goals of this program. You may receive priority if you are a beginning farmer or rancher, a socially-disadvantaged farmer or rancher, a small or medium-sized farm or ranch structured as a family farm, a farmer or rancher cooperative, or are proposing a mid-tier value chain. Grants are awarded through a national competition.

This workshop will be held at Adams State University’s McDaniel Hall, room 317 from 2:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. in Alamosa, Colorado. Free parking in designated parking spaces are available in front of ASU Community Partnerships building or park on Edgemont Blvd. or Richardson Ave.

This workshop is free and open to the public. Call ASU Community Partnerships at (719)587-7230 for more information regarding this event.
