According to the application, “The purpose of the Value-Added Producer Grant (VAPG) Program is to help U.S. agricultural producers enter into value-added activities.  Awards may be made for either economic planning or working capital activities related to the processing and/or marketing of valued-added agricultural products.  The maximum grant amount for a planning grant is $75,000 and the maximum grant amount for a working capital grant is $250,000.”
