The federally funded Specialty Crop Block Grant program is designed to enhance the competitiveness of specialty crop producers in areas such as marketing, promotion, education, research, trade, and increasing child and adult nutrition knowledge and consumption of specialty crops. Specialty Crops are defined as fruits and vegetables, dried fruits, horticulture and nursery crops (including floriculture). A complete list of specialty crops is posted here.
Individual producers, producer groups, organizations, and associations, as well as state and local organizations, academia and other specialty crops stakeholders are eligible to apply. Each project must demonstrate measurable benefits for the specialty crop industry and must assist more than just a single producer, organization or company.
