Specialty Crop Block Grant Program
The North Dakota Department of Agriculture administers the USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant program.
This is a block grant to promote specialty crops in the state. The state allocation is based on acres planted to specialty crops in each state. North Dakota's estimated allocation is $480,000 for the 2013 Specialty Crop Block Grant.
The 2013 Specialty Crop Block Grant program is now open. Please see information listed below.
