Grant-writing workshops designed to help potential applicants understand, develop, and submit their Federal grant applications for the Farmers Market and Local Food Promotion Program are being offered in every US state this spring through a unique collaboration between federal, state, and regional partners. UConn Extension in collaboration with the NE Regional Center for Rural Development is partnering with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) and National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) to conduct workshops in Connecticut & Rhode Island. This effort is known as the Agricultural Marketing Service Technical Assistance (AMSTA) Project.

This workshop will include: overview of the two grants programs, developing your idea, preparing your proposal, and preparing the application.
