US (WI): Applications sought for grants to grow food markets

Farmers and others in Wisconsin’s food industry who want to grow their local markets are encouraged to apply for the Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin grant program.

The program, managed by the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP), helps farms and businesses more efficiently process, market and distribute food in local markets including stores, schools and institutions.

Applications are due by 4 p.m. Dec. 1 and are available here. Recipients will be announced in March.

A total of $200,000 is available in grant funding; the maximum award for each project is $50,000. Applicants must provide a cash or in-kind match of at least 50 percent of the total project budget.

Qualified applicants include individuals, groups or businesses involved in the production of agriculture, food processing, food distribution, food warehousing, retail food establishments or agricultural tourism operations. Proposals could include collaborations or partnerships.

Since its inception in 2008, the Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin grant program has generated $6 million in new local food sales.
