Please join the Food Finance Institute for a free webinar to launch our 2024 VAPG Program Series. At Preparing for the 2024 VAPG, we will host a conversation with past applicants that have received the grant and USDA staff that have firsthand knowledge of the USDA’s Value Added Producer Grant.
Throughout this 90-minute webinar, renowned VAPG writer and consultant James Gage, FFI Farm Outreach Specialist Andy Larson, and USDA VAPG national co-coordinator Mike Daniels will discuss key considerations for the 2024 VAPG. Attendees will also hear from Michael Gutschenritter from Three Brothers Farm and Sarah Werner from Werner Creek Farm, who will share their experiences applying for, receiving, and utilizing a VAPG to change the trajectory of their farm businesses.
Learn insights, considerations, and ideas for how the VAPG could impact the future of your farm or a farm you work with at this free webinar event. Finally, learn about FFI’s VAPG Boot Camp scheduled for January, 2024, which will provide entrepreneurs with the focused training and strategy development they need to win a VAPG.
