Agricultural grant, loan applications due Jan. 4


Deadline for quarterly applications for Oklahoma's Agricultural Enhancement and Diversification program is set for Jan. 4. The program offers diversification grants of up to $10,000 as well as interest-free loans for agricultural enterprises, business plan development and feasibility studies.

When applying for grants and loans applicants must keep in mind that the approval and contractual processes can take several months after the deadline.

Grants are available on three levels: $2,500; $2,501 to 5,000; and $5,001 to 10,000. The first level requires no matching funds or in-kind support while grants of up to $5,000 require a 25 percent match in cash or in-kind contribution. Larger grants require a dollar-for-dollar match from the applicant.

Diversification grants target farmers who want to raise non-traditional crops or livestock, conduct value-added processing or those in agritourism.

Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry coordinators Jason Harvey and Gary Bledsoe are experienced in dealing with both loan and grant applications and can frequently offer advice to applicants. Harvey's phone number is 405-522-5563. Bledsoe can be reached at 405-830-1341.

Applications and additional information are available online at www.oda.state.ok.us or by calling Jason Harvey at the ODAFF. Harvey's mailing address is: Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry, 2800 N. Lincoln Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73105.
