Grants of up to $500 to Kentucky agricultural producers for training and educational opportunities. Funding is intended for costs associated with attending conferences and workshops. Funding may also be requested for relevant books. Special consideration will be made for minority, female, limited-resource, and small acreage farmers as well as farmers located in food-insecure and SOAR counties.
The Kentucky State University Center for the Sustainability of Farms and Families (KSU-CSFF) offers an educational support program to support small scale farmers//producers in the expansion of certain types of agriculture in Kentucky, especially among certain underserved groups.
Grant funding decisions are based upon the impact the grant is expected to have on the production and sales of Kentucky-grown or Kentucky-raised farm products.
Funding for educational support must be pre-approved (prior to attending any workshop, conference, etc. OR the purchase of educational literature) and can use funds for registration fees, specific travel (flight, bus, train), and in some cases, mileage on personal vehicles (reimbursed at $0.41/mile).
Examples of funding may include, but are not limited to the following:
