Does it feel like lots of federal and foundation grants look like they should be perfect for your initiative at first glance, but when you dig into the guidelines and application process, they feel inaccessible or even impossible?
Many of the USDA grant applications that food systems organizations seek today were first designed in the 1800’s as a tool for “Western Expansion” and intended to finance land-grabbing or colonization to establish “American” agriculture, businesses, and universities. These historical origins still show up in the application parameters we see today within USDA grant opportunities.
This webinar is intended to discuss the historically inaccessible design of USDA grants, but also strategies for how to subvert these barriers, and access the supportive dollars you’re seeking.
