NOFA NJ Offering Mini-Grants for Key Farm Infrastructure

NOFA NJ Mini-Grants up to $10,000 to Support Small & Beginning Farm Access to Key Farm Infrastructure

In 2023, the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey (NOFA NJ) successfully advocated for increased resources for organic and regenerative farmers in the New Jersey state budget. A $1M Grant-in-Aid was awarded to NOFA NJ and is being facilitated through the New Jersey Department of Agriculture.

One targeted use of this funding is the disbursement of mini-grants to obtain and/or improve key farm infrastructure. Applications will also be accepted for community-oriented food, farming or gardening projects that have a measurable impact beyond the individual applicant/organization.

Applications that meet the minimum eligibility criteria (see below) will be scored and awarded in the order the applications are received. NOFA NJ will continue to receive applications and make awards until all available funds are expended. All activities supported by the mini-grant funding must be completed by June 30, 2024. The maximum amount funded per awardee is $10,000 and only one award can be issued per farm/business/organization/project.

Any municipal permits required for any improvements, installations, or projects associated with grant funds are the sole responsibility of the applicant. NOFA NJ reserves the right to make partial awards and/or deny applicants for any reason, and NOFA NJ reserves the right to request additional documentation as necessary to disburse grant funding.
