2015 Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin Grants

Presented by:  Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection
Time: 4:00pm

The Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin (BLBW) competitive grant program was launched in 2008 to strengthen Wisconsin’s agricultural and food industries. The grants work to reduce the marketing, distribution and processing hurdles that impede the expansion of sales of Wisconsin’s food products to local purchasers.

Farmers and others in Wisconsin’s food industry who want to grow their local markets are encouraged to apply in the 2015 round of grants. Managed by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection (DATCP), the grants can help farms and business more efficiently process, market and distribute food in local markets.

Pre-proposals must be received at DATCP by 4pm on December 1, and must include a cover page, a completed budget template, and a three page project description. Find the grant application materials here.

Contact DATCP’s Grants Manager Juli Speck at 608-224-5134 with any questions about the application process.
