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.
According to Arizona Department of Agriculture (AZDA), in order to qualify “projects must enhance specialty crop industry competitiveness. 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.”
The AZDA anticipates that approximately $1.2 million will be available for distribution to successful applicants in the fiscal year 2023 funding cycle.
There will be two virtual webinar workshops held via Zoom on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2023 and Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023 to provide more information. Sign up through SCBGP 2023 Webinar Registration.
