2021 Grants

In 2021, we received 21 grant applications from Black farmers across the region. Deeply inspired by all the applicants, we reached back out to our community and mobilized additional funds, making it possible to redistribute funding to everyone who applied. During the 2021 cycle, we redistributed $59,000 in grants to Black farmers in Oregon and Washington.
