[ISDA] Funds Available for Livestock Promotion

Entry Description
The Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) is again offering three grants to support Indiana’s vital livestock industry. The Indiana Livestock Promotion Grant, Indiana Livestock Market Development Grant, and the 4-H/FFA Youth Livestock Grant. The deadline for all livestock grants is February 1st, 2013.

The 4-H/FFA Youth Livestock Grant is an opportunity for 4-H or FFA chapters to “pay it forward” to deserving students interested in the livestock sector for the purchase of breeding stock to start a livestock enterprise or add animals to an existing operation.

The Indiana Livestock Promotion Grant is for qualifying organizations to submit project proposals designed to promote the livestock industry in Indiana through shows, sales, exhibitions, conventions, or similar events and programs.

The Indiana Livestock Marketing Development Grant is for qualifying organizations to submit project proposals for value added feasibility studies, research projects, market development, or other projects that encourage the development of business and industry related to livestock production, processing and distribution.

“ISDA is proud to make these funds available to help promote the livestock industry and to educate this next generation of agriculture entrepreneurs,” said Indiana Agriculture Director, Joe Kelsay.

Eligibility:
Not-for-Profit organizations, commissions and associations are eligible for all three grants. All livestock grants are 50:50 matching funds.

4-H/FFA Youth Livestock Grant: Not-for-profits should solicit applications from Indiana 4-H/FFA youth. Youth applicants are reviewed by the non-for-profit and select applicants they wish to request funds for. The Not-for-profit will submit the 4-H/FFA Youth Livestock application via email to ISDA.

Indiana Livestock Promotion Grant: Non-Profit organizations, commissions and associations are eligible to apply for this grant. The Indiana Livestock Promotion Grant entities must work to promote the livestock industry in Indiana.

Indiana Livestock Market Development Grant: Not-for-profits organizations, commissions, and associations are eligible to apply for funds that will work to develop or expand business or industry related to the livestock production, processing and distribution. The Not-for-profit will submit the Indiana Livestock Market Development Grant to be eligible for these funds.

The deadline for all grants is February 1st, 2013.
Only electronic applications will be accepted.
Winners will be announced by March 1st, 2013
