About

This grant is available to individuals or entities wanting to create or expand an agricultural event that benefits and furthers the public interest in agriculture.

The Oklahoma Agriculture Enhancement and Diversification Program provides funds in the form of 0% interest loans or grants for the purpose of expanding the state's value added processing sector and to encourage farm diversification. Funds, provided on a cost-share basis, must be used for marketing and utilization, cooperative marketing, farm diversification and basic and applied research. All funding proposals must clearly demonstrate the ability to directly benefit Oklahoma farmers and ranchers. Proposals are evaluated by a ten member Advisory Board with their recommendations for funding submitted to the Oklahoma State Board of Agriculture.


Eligibility

  • Principles should be individuals rather than a previously existing corporation. Those individuals must have some type of cooperative agreement between themselves that will ensure proper accountability for the proposed plan.

  • Proposals must show an economic impact to the agricultural community.

  • Applicants will be required to submit a letter endorsing the Event from a city or county government official or the local Chamber of Commerce.

  • Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and shall reside and be a legal resident of Oklahoma.


Terms

Grants are available in three levels not to exceed $10,000:

  • Grants $2,500 or less must show a projected economic impact up to $5,000.

  • Grants $2,501 - $5,000 must show a projected economic impact of $5,001 to $75,000.

  • Grants $5,001 - $10,000 must show a projected economic impact of more than $75,000.

Applications are evaluated quarterly by an Advisory Board. Proposals may be submitted anytime to the ODAFF, but 15 copies must be received prior to the quarter’s deadline in order to be eligible for review that quarter.

Applicants are encouraged to submit their proposals at least 6 months prior to their anticipated start time.
