USDA announces $27 million in Local Food Grants!

On January 11, USDA announced requests for applications for the Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP), the Local Food Promotion Program (LFPP), and the Federal-State Marketing Improvement Program (FSMIP), which offer $27 million in grants to fund innovative projects designed to strengthen market opportunities for local and regional food producers and businesses.

Farm to school grants happen under the LFPP, as well. Many opportunities for Maine and Bangor here!
