The application deadline for the first cycle of Local History Team grants has been extended to Feb. 1, 2019.
Grants of up to $500 per county Farm Bureau will be available to support teams’ work celebrating the legacy of your local farm communities and county Farm Bureaus. Applications will be evaluated in early February, with grants disbursed later that same month.
The simple online application form is available now, and asks for information about your county’s Local History Team, what projects and activities it’s planning, member involvement estimates and outreach beyond the farming community.
Local History Team grants and other funding sources are discussed on page 14 of the program’s Tool Kit & Resource Guide.
A second grant cycle will happen in the spring of 2019.
