Grant Application Assistance for USDA Programs

Technical assistance is available for growers and socially disadvantaged farmers to access USDA grants and loans.

Napa Valley Grapegrowers members and Napa County farmworkers are eligible to receive free technical support for grant applications through our partner Morrison. These grant programs provide financial assistance for a variety of projects that address environmental concerns, water & air quality, improved soil health, irrigation efficiency, value-added marketing programs, reduced soil erosion, renewable energy, and more.

Morrison has worked with NVG and the Farmworker Foundation for over 8 years and is a trusted partner. They are a business consulting firm with a focus on serving the food and agriculture industry that has helped to secure more than $55 million in grant funding for their clients over their history. There are a number of USDA programs that Morrison can provide application assistance for including:

  1. USDA Rural Energy for America Program
  2. USDA Value-Added Producer Grant
  3. USDA NRCS EQIP Program

This exciting and valuable opportunity for growers and socially disadvantaged farmers is a benefit of the USDA 2501 Grant program awarded this year to the Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation.
