For it’s upcoming fall 2011 award cycle, the Vermont Farm Women’s Fund will make three kinds of awards, including a special category to assist flood-impacted farmers. The application deadline is Nov. 8, 2011.
Vermont farm women may apply for Business Development funds, Leadership Development funds or Flood Recovery awards. Farm Business Development awards provide support for education and travel related to helping recipients improve some aspect of their business. Leadership Development awards provide support to help women farmers develop skills, access and opportunities to provide leadership in agricultural policy development. “Flood Recovery” awards will assist flood-impacted farm women as they consider their business options for the future.
