The American Farm Bureau's Foundation for Agriculture is now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 White-Reinhardt School Year Project Grants.

The White-Reinhardt Grant Program funds projects that will increase agricultural literacy. County and State Farm Bureaus may apply for $1,000 grants for education programs for grades K-12 in order to initiate new ag literacy programs or expand existing programs. Organizations and individual schools can also work with their local Farm Bureaus to apply.

The White-Reinhardt Fund for Education is a special project of the Foundation in cooperation with the AFB Women’s Leadership Committee. It was established to honor two former chairs of that committee, Berta White and Linda Reinhardt, who were leaders in the national effort to improve agricultural literacy.

Grants are available on a competitive basis. Funding is not available for mileage, field trips, wages and benefits, safety programs or one-time consumable products such as copying, paper, seeds or meals. The intent is to build capacity by funding items that can be used repeatedly.

The 2024-2025 school year grant applications are open and are due June 14, 2024. The application and more information can be found HERE.
