— Written By AgOptions logo

Haywood County farmers are eligible for the 2021 cycle of the AgOptions Grants for Diversifying Farms. AgOptions is now accepting grant applications from farmers to diversify or expand their businesses. Funded by the N.C. Tobacco Trust Fund, a total of $216,000 will be distributed across the 21 western WNC counties and the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians.

The deadline for a Letter of Intent is October 23, with the application deadline being November 20. Check the AgOptions web page for full information on how to apply.

Historically, applicants that work closely with their local Extension Agent have had better success at being funded.
