Food and Agriculture Strategic Industry Growth Initiative
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) would like to take this time to make you aware of an exciting opportunity. The Food and Agriculture Strategic Growth Initiative is an outcome of the Governor's Summit on Production Agriculture held in August 2011 and is in response to the recommendations from the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Agricultural Processing.
The initiative will use a competitive grant process to fund research, education, and technical assistance efforts focused on removing barriers and leveraging opportunities identified by processors, agri-business, and those in agricultural production as critical to business development and growth.
