At the Wayne County Farm Bureau, we recognize it takes a large amount of hard work and sweat equity to make a lasting impact in our community. For almost 100 years, the Wayne County Farm Bureau has offered programs and services in Wayne County to inform, strengthen, and develop the agricultural industry in our communities.
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.
To help meet our mission, we have created the Community Impact Grant Program, to facilitate partnerships with local groups in Wayne County on projects that have an impact in our community.
There are many great ideas for community-based projects which, unfortunately, do not become a reality due to funding support. The Community Impact Grant Program seeks to identify various projects that will improve our community and to create partnerships with groups and individuals to make those projects a reality.
Proposals will be accepted thru March 1, 2020.
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, food banks, FFA chapters, fraternities, sororities, etc. Projects that have a lasting, multi-year impact will be favored over those with a short-term impact.
Grant requests should range from $250 - $2,500. Grant awards will be announced around March 15, with project completion to occur by August 15.
Grant applications are available on the Wayne County Farm Bureau website at www.waynecfb.com. If you have questions regarding the Community Impact Grant Program, please call 618-842-3342, or email Doug Anderson at [email protected]
