NC AgVentures Grant Program

We are no longer accepting applications. Please check back in November.

The primary goal of NC AgVentures is to strengthen agriculturally dependent families by providing support and funding to farm operators who have innovative plans to diversify, expand, or implement new entrepreneurial plans in their operations or communities.

This year we awarded grant funding to 20 Individual Farmer applicants and 3 Community Grant Projects. To learn about more about this years grant winners see Grants-by-Year.                                           

Funding: NC AgVentures is supported exclusively by a grant from the NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission. The grants averaged between $5,000 to $20,000. To learn more about the NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission please visit: http://www.tobaccotrustfund.org/     TTFC Sponsored Project
