Launched in 2020, the New England Farmer Microgrants Program (NEFMP) is a grant program that provides direct financial support to farmers across New England. The program seeks to address some of the key barriers faced by farmers in the region: access to farmland, farm succession / transfer planning , and the adoption of regenerative farming practices .
New in 2022, NEFMP will consist of two separate funding opportunities: the Western New England Regenerative Livestock Farming grant , and grants to support farmland access and succession planning.
The Western New England Regenerative Livestock Farming funding opportunity provides grants to livestock producers in select counties in CT, MA, NH, and VT for projects that improve soil health through the adoption of regenerative agricultural practices.
Applicants can request up to $10,000 under this funding opportunity.
Priority: Livestock farmers in specific counties seeking to implement practices for improved soil health.
Applications will open in October and awards will be announced in February. Revisit this page or sign up for notifications to stay updated.
