Agribusiness Grant Facilitation Program

The Agribusiness Grant Facilitation Program (AGFP) of the Kentucky Center for Agriculture and Rural Development (KCARD) helps Kentucky agribusinesses learn about and apply for funding.  With the support of business planning and technical assistance available through KCARD, the program is able to help hard-working applicants put together strong grant applications.  We frequently assist farmers with the following:

  •  identify funding options;
  •  determine eligibility for grant programs;
  •  work through required registrations;
  •  understand the grant requirements; and,
  •  review grant applications.

We have helped dozens of farmers, businesses, and organizations apply for and receive funding from many programs, including all the ones listed below:
