On December 16, 2pm EST, USDA will conduct a free webinar on the Specialty Crop Block Grant Program. The webinar will discuss the purpose of the program, the types of projects the program aims to fund, and how to apply for a grant.
According to the webinar announcement, “USDA invites everyone who is currently engaged in, or interested in engaging in, the production, handling, sale, or research of specialty crops to participate.” Trista Etzig, Manager of the Specialty Crop Block Grant Program, will be the guest speaker and will answer questions about the program.
Many NSAC member organizations were awarded Specialty Crop Block Grants in 2010 and in past years; read our blog post from September on the 2010 awards here.
