The Governor’s Advisory Commission on Maryland Wine and Grape Growing is conducting a grant competition to award an estimated $90,000 from the Maryland Wine and Grape Promotion Fund. The Fund (Agricultural Article, § 2- 1102) seeks to promote the production and consumption of Maryland wine and the increased growing of commercial wine grapes in the state. The Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) serves as the administrative agency in receiving the applications and disbursing the grants to the successful applicants.
The Commission’s current priorities include but not limited to:
- Increase the quantity of high quality Maryland-grown fruit available to the State’s wineries through research that addresses a variety of threats to local vineyards;
- Strengthening the vineyard and winery workforce through workforce training programs in either Spanish or English.
- Promoting new Maryland based vineyard management
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Maryland nongovernmental organizations/businesses that are registered with Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation and are in good standing to do business in Maryland.
- Proposals must serve the commercial wine and grape growing industry on a state-wide basis.
- No specific match is required; however, priority will be given to projects that include matching funds and in-kind contributions from other public, private, and nonprofit sources.
