Overview:

Livestock Grants

The Indiana State Department of Agriculture's livestock grants are awarded to nonprofit organizations to foster growth within the Hoosier livestock industry. Educational programs, livestock shows/exhibitions, conventions and similar events and projects are eligible to apply for livestock promotion funding. The market development grant provides funding for value-added feasibility studies, research projects, market development and other projects that encourage the development of business and industry related to livestock production, processing and distribution. Both the livestock promotion and market development grants will reimburse up to 50 percent of the amount spent to conduct or support the projects, programs and events outlined in each of the grants.

The Indiana State Department of Agriculture’s (ISDA) vision is to make Indiana a world leader in innovation and commercialization of food, fuel and fiber production. ISDA works to promote and nurture the economic development of the agricultural sector, especially the livestock industry.
