The Maryland Agricultural and Resource-Based Industry Development Corporation (MARBIDCO) has announced a grant incentive funding opportunity to encourage Maryland’s agricultural producers to expand or diversify their business operations by installing capital assets (equipment and fixtures) to make a product that is “value added” (hint: craft beverages are value-added!) The amounts range from $2,500 to $10,000. The business must have been in operation for two years.
The application deadline is 4:00 p.m., on Thursday, September 26, 2019. Applications received in the mail with a Saturday, September 21, 2019 postmark will also be accepted. Grant announcements should be made by mid-November 2019. Late applications will not be accepted.
