Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $24,500 to Wyoming government agencies, nonprofit organizations, producers, and academics for projects to support local agriculture. Funding is intended for initiatives that advance the marketability of eligible agricultural products. Eligible crops include fruits and tree nuts, vegetables, culinary herbs and spices, medicinal plants, as well as nursery, floriculture, and horticulture crops.

The goal of the WDA Specialty Crop Program is to substantially enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops. Specialty crops are defined as “fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits, horticulture, and nursery crops including floriculture.” This has been made possible through a grant from the USDA Specialty Crops Block Grant Program to carry out the following projects focusing on education, production, processing consumption, marketing, distribution, and food safety. Through sub-grants SCBGP Program assists entities in solely enhancing the competitiveness of Wyoming specialty crops.
