New Mexico Farmers Marketing Association: COVID-19 Local Food Supply Chain Response – Infrastructure Grant
The Infrastructure Grant Program seeks to provide New Mexico farmers and ranchers with financial support for infrastructure needs to support goals including growing or improving the economic viability of agricultural operations, increasing soil and ecosystem health, increasing access to healthy and culturally important food in our families and communities, and supporting the next generation of young farmers and ranchers.
For this program, infrastructure is meant to be things that will contribute to the long term health, success and sustainability of the farm/ranch – this can include marketing, processing, etc. While daily labor is not the intent of funding, the budget can include the labor needed to implement/install an infrastructure project.
Amount: The program aims to fund a maximum of 10 projects with a budget of up to $10,000, 20 projects with budgets of up to $2,500, and 50 projects with budgets of up to $1,000.
Eligibility: Farmers, ranchers, and producer collectives who are residents or whose farms are located in New Mexico. Collectives do not need to be official/legal groups or coops – they can be informal groups of farmers/ranchers working together.
Deadline: March 17, 2021.
