Grants of up to $1,000 to New Hampshire commodity groups and organizations for activities that promote the state's agricultural industry.

Preference will be given to new efforts for the applicant to improve new and existing markets. Applicants should not decrease the commitment of overall funds for advertising and promotion.

  • Publicity/public relations
  • Advertising
  • Contests
  • Point-of-purchase materials

Applicants may request up to $1,000 in a fiscal year.

Term of Contract:

Projects must be completed within the calendar year period following the approval of the application. Exceptions may be allowed upon written explanation of the delay.

An organization must have an Employer Identification Number (EIN) to be eligible to apply and provide a Certificate of Good Standing from the NH Secretary of State, prior to funds distribution.

Applicants previously receiving a Mini-Grant are eligible to apply again, but it must be for a new project that has not previously received Mini-Grant funding. Only one project may be submitted per group in a given funding round.

No funds shall be used for administrative costs, salaries, overhead. Individual businesses are not eligible. If completion of a previous Mini-Grant project has been delayed, the organization is not eligible for new funding until the prior project is finished and substantiating reports submitted.

Funds should not be used for programs the applicant’s organization is already funding.

Applications are typically available in December and awards are usually made in the following March.

No grant may exceed 50% of the total cost of the promotional project.

Mini-Grants are intended to match organizational funds. No in-kind services shall be used to match state funds. All matching funds shall be documented by the applicant. Anticipated funds will not qualify unless there is a firm letter of commitment attached to the application. No other NH Dept. of Agriculture, Markets & Food grant funds may be used to match.
