Grants to Ohio nonprofit organizations, universities, research institutions, cooperatives, and commodity groups to enhance the competitiveness of the state's agricultural products. Funding is intended to advance the long-term economic viability and marketability of specialty crops. Specialty crops are identified as fruits, vegetables, dried fruit, honey, maple syrup, tree nuts, and nursery crops (including floriculture).
Higher rankings will be given to projects that demonstrate profit potential for growers and that could boost employment opportunities in the specialty crop industry. Applicants are encouraged to coordinate efforts of similar projects; however, unique projects will be considered.
Grant projects may focus on, but are not restricted to these areas:
Aquaponics is allowable if the crops that are being grown are eligible specialty crops and the focus of the project is on the specialty crop and not the fish.
