Dairy processor grant applications due soon
The application deadline is approaching for the next round of Wisconsin’s dairy processing grant program.
Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection Secretary Randy Romanski says the budget for the grant program doubled to 400 thousand dollars annually, and grants will be awarded for projects up to 50 thousand dollars and two years in duration. Processors need 20% matching funds.
Applications are available online through the DATCP website and are due before 5:00 pm Friday, January 30th. Recipients will be chosen through a competitive selection process and announced in March.
