Specialty Crop Block Grant Program

Under the 2008 Farm bill, the Nevada Department of Agriculture receives grant funding from the United States Department of Agriculture to enhance the competitiveness of Nevada’s specialty crops (fruits, vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits, horticulture and nursery crops). In order to seek out program enhancing projects, the NDA conducts an annual competitive application process to award grant funds to eligible and top scoring candidates.
