******ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A GRANT? PLEASE READ THIS!******

 

The Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) administers numerous federal grants and cooperative agreements internally through its various departmental divisions. GDA does not offer any grants that are available to individuals and/or businesses (including farms). There are federal and private grants and loans available (again, not administered by GDA) that applicants can independently apply for. The links included in this list are not all-inclusive, but are a starting point for agricultural-related grant/loan research.
