The Adirondack Council and Essex Farm Institute have recently updated its micro-grant program to allow farmers, value-added producers and food pantries to apply for COVID-19 related emergency funding during this grant cycle.
In the midst of new and unforeseen challenges to the local food system, the aim is to help mitigate some of those
challenges. This means there are now two types of grant applications for up to $5,000:
- Adirondack farmers and value-added producers seeking to enhance the environmental health and benefits their operations provide.
- Adirondack farmers, value-added producers and food pantries seeking financial assistance during the COVID-19 crisis. Projects or costs that get local food to local people are eligible.
The grant application deadline has been extended until April 7.
