2017 Agricultural Enhancement Grants Program Guidelines
We are now accepting applications for the 2017 Agriculture Enhancement Grants Program. This year, in celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday, we have $150,000 available to support agriculture in Abbotsford. Specifically we are inviting applications on marketing or research projects supporting new technology in agriculture (producers or processors) related to solving environmental issues.
For information please review the 2017 Agricultural Enhancement Grants Program Guidelines which include details on the process for submitting a Letter of Intent. Only organizations who are successful in the Letter of Intent phase will be invited to submit a full application. The deadline to receive Letters of Intent is Friday March 17, 2017.
Last year we awarded approximately $143,000 to five projects related to crop innovation. Click the link below for more information on the projects funded in 2016.
