From Penn State Cooperative Extension:
Penn State Extension is pleased to be working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural in offering workshops that will help potential grant applicants understand, develop, and submit their Federal grant applications for the $30 million Farmers Market and Local Food Promotion Program.
As you may know, the USDA views the Farmers Market and Local Food Promotion Program as a key to revitalizing rural economies by supporting local and regional food systems… This grant writing workshop will walk participants through all you need to know to navigate and apply for the upcoming 2015 USDA Farm Bill grants which provide funding for food system projects including the Local Food Promotion Program and The Farmers Market Promotion Program.
