Food Animal Concerns Trust (FACT) Fund-a-Farmer Project – Call for Applications!

January 11, 2013 |

Food Animal Concerns Trust (FACT) is now accepting grant applications for its Fund-a-Farmer Project!   The Fund-a-Farmer Project provides small grants to qualifying humane farmers who need assistance in improving the welfare of their farm animals. Grants of up to $1,500 will be awarded for projects that (1) help farms transition to pasture-based systems, (2) improve the marketing of their humane products, or (3) more generally enrich the conditions in which farm animals are raised. Working, independent family farmers that raise pigs, broiler chickens, laying hens, dairy cows and/or beef cattle are eligible to apply for any of the three types of grants. Projects involving goats and sheep are only eligible for marketing grants.  Applications must be submitted online or postmarked by May 1, 2013 for awards made in August 2013. View guidelines and apply online at www.fundafarmer.org. Contact Lisa at email hidden; JavaScript is required or 773-525-4952 with questions.
