The Urban Schools Agricultural Grant Program is an exciting agricultural-related program for urban elementary and middle public school pupils enrolled in districts with populations of 49,000 or more. The program helps improve students' understanding of agriculture through projects such as school vegetable gardens, which can provide lessons not only in horticulture, but also in water conservation and nutrition. Projects are limited only by the extent of an applicant's imagination.
Generally, expenses that are necessary and reasonable for proper and efficient performance and administration directly related to the project are eligible. Grant funds may not be used to supplant normal business costs but instead may be used to cover the costs incurred for the approved proposed activities.
The application deadline is May 16, 2019
