Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin Grant Period Opens

Individuals, organizations, and businesses who work to increase the purchase of food grown and produced in Wisconsin can now apply for competitive grants from the State’s Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin initiative. The grant program provides up to $50,000 per project and requires at least a 33% cash or in-kind match from the applicant. Last year’s grant recipients ranged from an abandoned apple orchard rehabilitation program to promotion of artisan meats production and sales in Wisconsin.
