Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $1,000 to USA state and county farm bureaus for K-12 classroom agricultural literacy projects and programs. Funding may be requested to start new or expand existing agricultural literacy programs. Priority will be given to programs that demonstrate a need for financial support. The intent is to build capacity by funding items that can be used repeatedly.

Projects should:

  • Enhance learner engagement in today’s food, fiber, and fuel system
  • Creatively engage students in a manner that encourages them to learn more about agriculture
  • Have a complete narrative and include well thought out plan, goals, timeline, and budget 
  • Expand on current agricultural literacy efforts (additional grades, audiences, new subjects, etc.)
  • Indicate specifically how the project aligns with The Pillars of Agricultural Literacy. Information about The Pillars of Agricultural Literacy can be seen at: https://www.agfoundation.org/pillars
