US (VT): Produce Safety Improvement Grant Program accepting applications
VAAFM aims to learn more about produce growers’ needs and commonly occurring produce safety challenges through this grant program which is the first of its kind in Vermont. Inspired by similar programs in Massachusetts and Maryland, Produce Safety Improvement Grants support Vermont produce growers as they adapt to new regulations and market requirements for on-farm food safety.
“We are happy to support Vermont produce growers as they adapt to meet FSMA produce safety regulations. While we understand growers’ concerns over new regulations, we hope this grant program helps the industry install needed infrastructure and see the Produce Safety Rule as an opportunity to increase access to new markets and further development of farms as sustainable businesses,” said Vermont Agriculture Secretary, Anson Tebbetts.
Farms subject to the PSR are encouraged to apply for Produce Safety Improvement Grants to receive funding assistance for equipment, infrastructure, or other improvements to improve on-farm produce safety.
