The Indiana Department of Agriculture is accepting proposals for a special grant program.

The USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program is designed to fund better competition for specialty crops. Those are defined as fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, horticulture and nursery crops. Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch says Indiana is home to a diverse agriculture industry that adds a lot to our state’s economy and society.

Organizations, non-profits, trade associations, universities and others can apply through the Indiana State Department of Agriculture through March 22.
