Local History Team grant apps reopen until May 31
By Jeremy C. Nagel
Applications will be evaluated in early June, with funds disbursed directly to county Farm Bureaus later that same month.
Local History Teams have until the end of May to apply for funding in the program’s second and final grant cycle. Applications will be accepted through Friday, May 31 for awards of up to $500 to support county Farm Bureaus’ work celebrating the legacy of their local farm communities.
“The winter cycle was a huge success,” said Jeremy C. Nagel, who manages the Local History Team program. “Out of the 22 applications we received, only one of them wasn’t deemed fundable—and we’re working with that one county to get its ideas ready for success in this next cycle.”
The online application form is available now, and asks for information about the projects and activities you’re planning, member involvement and outreach beyond the farming community.
