Value-Added Producer Grant Workshop:

The Clearwater Economic Development Association is hosting a workshop on the USDA Rural Development Value-Added Producer Grant (VAPG) program.

The workshop is January 23, 2020 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Idaho Department of Labor office in Lewiston at 1158 Idaho St.

The VAPG program helps ag commodity growers create value-added activities related to the processing and marketing of new products. The goals of this matching grant program are to generate new products, create and expand marketing opportunities and increase producer income.  Funding can support feasibility studies for producers to evaluate opportunities for value-added products and working capital to expand existing production or enter new markets.

The workshop will include a presentation by the USDA Rural Development Program Specialist and guidance on applying for funding.
