Adirondacks Micro Grant

Adirondack Council

Closed March 31, 2024

The Micro-Grants for Adirondack Farms and Value-Added Producers provide funding for the implementation of environmentally-beneficial and sustainable projects. The program has been made possible with funding support from the Klipper Family Fund and subsequent contributions from generous individuals and foundations.


Eligible applicants are commercial farms within the Adirondack Park and value-added producers who use a majority of inputs that originate from within the Adirondack Park. For projects involving 3 or more collaborating entities, each entity named must be eligible by the same general criteria.


The 2023-2024 grant cycle will be in its eighth year of offering micro-grants. Competitive awards will be made in all three of the following levels: 

Tier 1: up to $1,500 for projects on small farms or value-added producers so that those businesses might adapt to and mitigate the impacts of climate change, or improve or restore environmental health.  

Tier 2: Larger businesses – those with greater acreage, employees, or gross sales -- will be eligible to apply for more competitive $3,000 grants.  

Tier 3: Grant applications that feature partnerships between farms or value-added businesses that are tackling sustainability efforts at a community scale may apply for up to $8,000 in funding to offset projects. For instance, projects that empower several businesses to collaborate on addressing an environmental issue by sharing resources, technologies, equipment, or tools will be eligible for additional funding. Proposed projects will be scored against one another competitively regardless of the applicant’s tier.
