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.
The 2022-2023 grant cycle will be in its seventh year of offering micro-grants. For this round of grants, the Adirondack Council and Essex Farm Institute (EFI) are seeking grant proposals for several tiers of eligibility with awards that will enhance the environmental benefits their farms and businesses provide.
Grants of up to $3,000 will be offered to larger farms and value-added producers and up to $8,000 of funding is available for community-scaled projects led by a single entity and at least four co-applicants. Project areas can include but are not limited to, soil management, water quality improvements, energy conservation, and emissions reductions. Preference will be given to proposals that will be fully funded by the micro-grants, utilize organic practices, and align with Essex Farm Institute’s vision and mission.
Farms and businesses are limited to one application per grant cycle. Farm businesses listed as co-applicants for Tier III applications may not apply as single entities.
