Farm grant

The Missouri Department of Economic Development's Family-Owned Farm Grant Program will be closing on Friday.

All applications for family-owned farms must be submitted and signed before Friday. Any unsigned applications will be voided.

Of the $30 million allocated to the Small Business Grant program through federal CARES Act funding, $7.5 million is available to family-owned farms and family farm corporations. Each applicant can request up to $50,000 in assistance through the grant program for reimbursement of costs due to business interruption caused by the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Eligible expenses include costs to facilitate livestock depopulation incurred by producers due to supply chain disruptions or as a form of economic support. Unemployment insurance costs related to the public health emergency are also eligible if such costs will not be reimbursed by the federal government.
