Agricultural Grants and Loans Available; Apply by April 1
The Agricultural Enhancement and Diversification Program (AEDP) helps fund qualified agriculture-related projects across the state with zero percent interest loans and grants. The program goal is to expand the state’s value-added sector and encourage farm diversification.



There are five types of funding sources available including a farm diversification grant, an agricultural event grant, a marketing and utilization loan, a cooperative marketing loan, and the basic and applied research loan/grant. The application process is simple and applications are accepted quarterly. The next deadline is April. 1.



AEDP funds can be used for a variety of projects. Requirements for the program stipulate that funding be used to produce agriculture-related products and must create rural economic development. Applicants must be 21 years of age and must reside in and be a legal resident of Oklahoma. The application form and additional information about each loan can be found at www.ag.ok.gov/mktdev/aedp.htm.



Program coordinator Jason Harvey can be reached at 405-606-1477 or jason.harvey@ag.ok.govto assist or answer questions about the program prior to submission of applications.



The Agricultural Enhancement and Diversification Program is administered by the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry.
