Funding for NC Veteran Farmers and Ranchers

WHAT IS THE FARMER VETERAN FELLOWSHIP FUND?
The Farmer Veteran Fellowship Fund is a small grant program that provides direct assistance to veterans who are in their beginning years of farming or ranching. The Fellowship Fund does not give money directly to the veteran, but rather to third-party vendors for items the veteran has identified will make a crucial difference in the launch of their farm business. Awards range from $1,000 to $5,000, and more than $1.9 million has been awarded to veterans since 2011.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Veterans of any branch of the U.S. Military from all service eras–including those currently serving
Those who received a characterization of service of ‘Honorable’ upon discharge
Must have an agricultural business in operation and a functional business plan
Must be willing to fully participate in the Fellowship Program, which includes periodic progress reports, mentoring other farmer veterans and a desire to make a positive impact on the farmer veteran community
