Grant Description
Grants of up to $1,000 to New Hampshire commodity groups and organizations for activities that promote the state's agricultural industry. Funding may be requested for promotional efforts aimed at increasing the demand in existing markets for New Hampshire’s agricultural products, as well as to identify new markets and build product demand.

The product (s) being promoted must be New Hampshire-grown or processed agricultural food, fiber, livestock or horticultural crops.

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. 

Projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Publicity/public relations
  • Advertising
  • Contests
  • Point-of-purchase materials
  • Printing & distribution of brochures, or other promotional publications
  • Merchandising
  • Demonstrations
  • Website promotion


  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Applications will be accepted from organizations or commodity groups engaged in production, marketing or promotion of New Hampshire agricultural products.

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.

Pre-Application Information
Application Deadline: In office by 4 pm, February 22, 2022

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.

Estimated Size of Grant
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.
