USDA now accepting Specialty Crop Block Grant proposals

The USDA will invest $72.9 million in the latest round of Specialty Crop Block Grant Initiative funding for the 2024 fiscal year.

USDA Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Jenny Lester Moffitt made the announcement Monday as part of a Specialty Crop Competitiveness Initiative stakeholder roundtable in Grant, Michigan.

“Specialty crop producers have a unique set of challenges, pest challenges, of course, making sure that they have a labor workforce to be able to harvest and to plant and to pick the crop and process the crop,” she says.
