$25,000+ for B.C. agriculture industry projects 

Agriculture funding

A lovely Friday to you, Funds Fans!  Good news today for B.C.’s agriculture related industries.

The Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP) was launched in 2009 as a five year, $163 million initiative of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. CAAP’s objective is to assist the agriculture, agri-food, and agri-based products sector’s ability to seize opportunities, respond to new and emerging issues, as well as pathfind and pilot solutions to new and ongoing issues in order to help it adapt and remain competitive.

To encourage the BC industry to take full advantage of the programming dollars allocated for British Columbia, IAF has issued a Request for Proposals.  Grants range from up to $25,000 +.  Deadline: July 12th, 2013.

The funding level for a project will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Eligible projects can be funded up to 85% of eligible cash costs, and could be in the areas of traceability, environment, climate change, pests and diseases, and more.

Eligible recipients must be a Canadian legal entity capable of entering into a contract to deliver a project. This may include organizations and associations, cooperatives, marketing boards, aboriginal groups, non-profit organizations, for-profit companies and individuals.

There it is, folks.  Go and get it!  Sign up on the right to receive blog updates to your in-box.
