Black Farmer Grants

The Black Food Fund is awarding $59,000 in grant awards to 21 incredible farmers Oregon and Washington. Earlier this year, we received 21 grant applications from Black farmers across the region. Deeply inspired by all the applicants, we reached back out to our generous community of supporters and raised additional funds to make it possible to provide grants to all the Black farmers who had applied.¬† We’re excited to highlight below the first round recipients, six farmers who are each being awarded¬†a $5,000 grant.

The recipients of the $3,000 and $1,000 grants will be announced in August 2021.
