Grant to give $200K to farmers in need

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A new grant program overseen by the New Mexico Farmers’ Marketing Association and the New Mexico Acequia Association plans to distribute more than $200,000 to farmers in need, according to a news release from the organizations.

The grant program aims to address the uncertain conditions faced by small to medium sized farmers and ranchers following the coronavirus pandemic.

“This new phase of funding will address the critical shortage of financial resources available to small and midsize farm and ranch operations for infrastructure—including cold storage and irrigation needs,” the release said. “The goal is to help individual New Mexico producers recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and ultimately be able to access more market opportunities.”

Grant applications must be submitted by March 17. To apply, visit www.newmexicoFMA.org or www.lasacequias.org, or email sarahg@farmersmarketsnm.org, or call 505-983-4010 x2.
