Farm Credit Mid-America is providing grant funding to support Young Agricultural Professionals programming. Interested groups must apply by Nov. 1, 2021.

Eight $500 grants will go to local YAP groups and two $500 grants will go to Collegiate Farm Bureau groups. These grants provide funding for educational programming or YAP events held in the county, multicounty areas or on a college campus. 

All grant applications must be received by Nov. 1, 2021 by 12 p.m. Groups must submit photos of their YAP group or of the event in order to apply for the award. Only complete applications received by the deadline will be considered.

Ohio Farm Bureau’s Young Agricultural Professionals are singles and married couples ages 18 to 35 who are interested in improving the business of agriculture, learning new ideas and developing leadership skills.
