    ​At the Wayne County Farm Bureau, we understand the amount of hard work and sweat equity that is required to make a lasting impact in our community. For over 90 years, the Wayne County Farm Bureau has offered programs and services in Wayne County to inform, strengthen, and develop the agricultural industry.
    We continue that same mission today, by investing time and resources to improve the economic well-being of agriculture, and enriching the quality of our rural way of life. Despite our best efforts, we realize that we cannot meet all of the needs in Wayne County by ourselves. This is why we’ve created the Community Impact Grant Program.
    There are many great ideas for community-based projects which, unfortunately, do not become a reality. The Community Impact Grant Program seeks to identify various projects that will improve our community, and create partnerships with groups and individuals to make those projects a reality.
    Proposals will be accepted thru March 1.  The submitting organization or individual must be based in Wayne County or have operations in the county. Examples of organizations include schools, civic organizations, churches, 4-H clubs, FFA chapters, fraternities, sororities, etc. Projects that have a lasting impact will be favored over those with a short-term impact.  
    Grant awards will be announced around March 15, with project completion to occur by August 15.
