The Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBGP) is now open for applications. The grant application deadline is 11:59:59 p.m. (MST) Friday, March 3, 2023. All applications must be submitted online.

Applications for grant funds should show how the project potentially impacts and produces measurable outcomes for the specialty crop industry and/or the public rather than a single organization, institution, or individual.”
