The USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBG) program is a competitive grant program, solicited once a year, which funds market research, market promotion and new technology projects specifically to benefit specialty crop producers. The Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry and a Review Committee select projects to fund through a competitive grant request for proposals process and then applies to USDA for accepting those projects selected. Grants typically are provided to projects that will help a number of businesses, rather than support individual businesses.
