AFT’s Brighter Future Micro-Grants Program
American Farmland Trust announces it has received $1.6 Million from Tillamook County Creamery Association to save farms and farmland and support the needs of farmers. Inspired by the amazing resilience of farmers across this country as they continued to feed Americans even in a time of national crisis, AFT and TCCA have teamed up to permanently protect farmland and provide direct support to farmers in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, changing markets, severe weather and climate change and other forces impacting the food and agriculture systems.
Applications for this microgrants program remain open for applicants from Nashville, Tampa, Orlando, and Miami and are being reviewed on a rolling basis. We are anticipating making decisions in December, and announcing awardees in by the end of 2020. Funds will be disbursed 60-90 days following awards. Thank you for your patience and commitment to our nation’s farmland. Stay tuned!
