Agriculture Impact Fund Grants available

The Logan County Farm Bureau is excited to announce that the third year of the Logan County Agriculture Impact Fund grants are now available. The grant program was created by funds raised from the Logan County Farm Bureau Agriculture Impact Fund Reverse Raffle event.

The purpose of the grant fund is to support projects and events that will expand and grow agriculture’s footprint in the county and encourage youth development in agriculture. Grants will be offered to any organization in Logan County that promotes the well-being and enrichment of youth involved in the local agriculture community. Grants will be evaluated on a competitive basis and projects submitted for the grant MUST be completed by the 2021 year-end.

Grant Timeline:

  • Submissions may begin after Sept. 1, 2020
  • Applications will be due Oct. 16, 2020
  • Upon submission, grants will go through two review committees.
  • Recipients will be notified by Dec. 1 regarding their success in the application process.
  • Completed project reports will be due to the committee by Nov. 30, 2021 and final payment will be processed.

The goal of this program is to award as many projects as possible in order to see agriculture’s footprint expand in the county. In the previous two years of the program, the county was able to award over $31,000 in grant dollars used for agriculture projects. 

Below is one of the 2020 grant award winners, Ohio Hi-Point Career Center’s Animal Science Program, which started its own apiary habitat.
