Beehive Grant Fund 

Effective July 1, 2018, the Beehive Distribution Program replaced the Beehive Grant Program (see Chapter 192 of Acts of Assembly). The Beehive Distribution Program (Program) provides beehive equipment directly to eligible beekeepers. Residents of the Commonwealth of Virginia who are 18 years of age or older at the time an application is submitted are eligible to receive up to three beehive units per year. Individuals who submit an application for a beehive unit through the Program will be registered as a beekeeper with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (Department).

Applications will be reviewed in the order in which each completed eligible application is received by the Department. In the event funds have been exhausted and all beehive units distributed for the fiscal year (July 1 thru June 30), the Department will cease accepting applications and notify applicants. Applications from individuals who do not receive beehive units will not be carried forward to the next fiscal year.

Effective July 1, 2018, the Beehive Grant Fund will be used solely for the Beehive Distribution Program.
