Logan County Farm Bureau is excited to announce that the 2024 Logan County Agriculture Impact Fund grants are now available. The yearly Logan County Farm Bureau Agriculture Impact Fund Reverse Raffle event funds the grant program.
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 agriculture community of our county. Grant applications are evaluated competitively, and projects awarded MUST be completed by the 2024 year-end.
- Applications will be due Nov. 1, 2023.
- 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, the following year, and final payment will be processed.
We hope to award as many projects as possible to see agriculture’s footprint expand in the county. In the previous six years of the program, the county was able to award over $50,000 in grant dollars for agriculture projects in our county.
Please direct questions to the county’s Sr. Organization Director Jill Smith, at [email protected] regarding the application or call the Farm Bureau office at 877-775-7642 for assistance.
