Applications for second round of Dairy Investment Grant Program ends November 15
“Abundantly Good cheese is the gift that keeps on giving,” said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. “Philabundance has perfected innovation in dairy by producing a value-added product that simultaneously supports local dairy farmers and feeds Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable.”
The Pennsylvania Dairy Investment Program provides grants that support on-farm innovation, research and development, organic transition, and value-added processing of products like cheese, yogurt, and ice cream. Funding for a second year was made possible by Governor Tom Wolf’s Pennsylvania Farm Bill.
Applications for the second round of the Dairy Investment Grant Program are currently open and close on November 15, 2019.
“We saw through the first round of dairy investment grants that innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in Pennsylvania dairy,” added Redding. “I’m excited to see dairy thrive in the commonwealth, nourished through this necessary investment.”
The PA Farm Bill is a comprehensive package of legislation signed by Governor Wolf in July that provides targeted support and investments to the commonwealth’s leading industry.
