Since 2014 NYFVI has administered a competitive grant program on behalf of the NY Corn & Soybean Growers Association. The program is funded through a NYS legislative appropriation.
The Farm Viability online application system is utilized for the program and the NYC&SGA board reviews all applications and makes the final funding decisions.
Typically RFP’s are released in early October. The most recent RFP which utilized a 2019 appropriation, as well as lists of projects that have been funded through this program can be downloaded below. It is anticipated that the 2020 RFP will be released on schedule.
