OKFB Foundation for Ag opens Grant Applications

Wed, 27 Jul 2022 09:34:01 CDT

OKFB Foundation for Ag opens Grant Applications The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is accepting applications for its three grant programs, offering a total of $16,000.

The foundation created the three grant programs – the mini grant program, the Growing with the Foundation program and the Community Harvest grant program – to help Oklahomans of all ages experience agriculture.

The mini grant program, which offers $500 to 10 county Farm Bureaus, 4-H clubs, FFA chapters or teachers, is designed to establish educational programs for school-aged children or adults to improve agriculture literacy. There are two opportunities throughout the year to apply with deadlines March 1 and September 1.

The Growing with the Foundation grant program will assist one school with $5,000 to purchase a greenhouse. The program will also provide five classrooms with floral and vegetable grow kits valued at $500 each. Applications for this grant program must be submitted by October 1.

Individual 4-H chapters and FFA clubs may apply for the Community Harvest grant program to receive up to $1,000 to support a service-learning project focused on creating and implementing sustainable food production to address hunger in the community. Applications must be submitted by November 1.

For more information about the grants, visit the OKFB Foundation for Agriculture grant page, or contact OKFB Foundation for Agriculture Director Holly Carroll at (405) 523-2300.
