Eleven projects throughout Virginia are sharing nearly $250,000 in funds aimed at strengthening the state’s agriculture and forestry industries, Gov. Bob McDonnell announced.
The grants are part of the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund to help improve local economic development efforts relating to agribusiness. The awards include $35,000 to develop a strategic plan for agricultural economic development in Giles, Montgomery and Pulaski counties.
Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry Todd Haymore says flexibility was given to applicants to pursue the type of project that made the most sense for their region or locality. The projects must match each dollar awarded with a dollar of local funds.
