USDA to offer three new grants

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Wednesday that it will take applications for the Fiscal Year 2014 Farm-to-School grants.

The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services encourages all eligible schools and organization to apply. The grants help eligible schools improve the health and well being of their students and connect with local farmers, a press release from the USDA said.

This year, three different kinds of grants are available. Planning grants are intended for schools just getting started on farm-to-school activities, and implementation grants are available for schools seeking to augment or expand existing efforts.

Additionally, eligible nonprofit entities, Indian tribal organizations, state and local agencies, and agriculture producers or groups of producers may apply for support service grants in order to conduct training, create complementary curriculum or further develop supply chains, among other activities.

The deadline for proposals is midnight, April 24.
