Accepting Applications for 2019 Specialty Crop Block Grants

Alaskans can apply for block grants of up to $60,000 to support specialty crops under a federal program administered by the Alaska Division of Agriculture.

The grants will be available in two categories, with smaller grants targeting entry-level or investigative projects, and larger grants aimed at more evidence-based research projects or those building on previous projects with strong industry support. Alaska’s specialty crops include fruits, vegetables, horticulture and nursery crops. These funds are awarded through a competitive review process guided by industry, nonprofit and government stakeholders. A Letter of Intent (LOI) is due by 5:00 p.m. Monday, February 11, 2019.
