In June 2023, grant managers from across the Agency of Agriculture got together to deliver a 1.5hr webinar on the grant opportunities available to Vermont farmers from the state of Vermont. The intended audience of this webinar was service providers who work with Vermont farmers. A very wide range of grant opportunities were discussed, including Water Quality grants (3:27 in webinar), Working Lands Enterprise Board grants (15:36), Dairy Business Innovation Center grants (33:21), marketing and branding resources and grants (53:21), Local Food Purchase Assistance grants (1:00:50), Farm First and PASA farmworker relief payments (1:09:45), and Produce Safety grants (1:18:50).
