What will you gain? This workshop series will provide a practical education for understanding the components of a successful grant application and highlight current funding opportunities that are relevant to agricultural businesses in New Jersey. You’ll also apply the concepts in the training to a project that is relevant to your faming operation. During workshops 2 and 3, you’ll actually start writing parts of a grant application.  When you finish the 3-workshop series, you will be ready to write a complete grant application to fund your project.
