2022 Young Farmer Grant Program

2022 Young Farmer Grant

2022 Young Farmer Grant Program Applications Opening This Week!

We are excited to share with you that the third year of applications for the National Young Farmer Coalition’s Young Farmer Grant Program opened on December 10th, 2022! 

Each Spring since 2020, with the support of Chipotle, we’ve provided 50 farmers and ranchers with $5,000 grants to support their farming goals. Grant recipients also receive a one-year membership to the National Young Farmers Coalition.

You’ll find that the program looks very similar to last year and we hope you’ll consider sharing your dreams for your farming careers with us again in a new application this winter. 

For our 2022 Young Farmer Grant program, forty-five awards will go to businesses already in operation, and five to projects starting in 2022. Our grant program is available to support farmers and ranchers in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, in addition to the 50 states and Washington D.C.

Applications are now open!

These grants are available to farmers of all races and gender identities. To ensure that our grants are contributing to ending inequity in access to agricultural careers, we commit to providing a minimum of 50% of our grants to Black, Indigenous, and other people of color (BIPOC), and 50% of grants to female-identifying, non-binary, and trans farmers. These are not mutually exclusive identity categories and should not be understood as adding up to 100% of available grants.

 Applications are also available in Spanish.

Applications close on January 28, 2021 (3:00pm ET).We will also be hosting a series of Q&A calls in December and January for interested applicants.
