Grants to West Virginia organizations, government entities, CBOs, IHEs, associations, and other stakeholders to enhance agricultural markets within the state. Funding is intended to support projects that improve the market competitiveness in foreign and domestic markets of honey, maple syrup, fruits and vegetables, and related foods. Grants for educational and research purposes are favored.

The Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBGP) assists applicants to enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops by:

  • Leveraging efforts to market and promote specialty crops;
  • Assisting producers with research and development relevant to specialty crops;
  • Expanding availability and access to specialty crops; and
  • Addressing local, regional, and national challenges confronting specialty crop producers. 

For purposes of the program, specialty crops are defined as fruits, vegetables, peas, lentils, horticulture, and nursery crops (including floriculture). 

The West Virginia SCBGP provides an opportunity for organizations to develop and enhance programs and activities targeted at increasing the production, promotion, research, and sales of specialty crops throughout the state.
