Grants & Awards
Farm Credit East offers financial grants and recognition to those who support agriculture and vitalize our rural communities.
Lipinski Rural Initiatives Award
Former Farm Credit East CEO Bill Lipinski was an advocate for Northeast rural communities. That is why the Farm Credit East Board of Directors established the Lipinski Rural Initiatives Award upon his retirement – to grow the organization's support of rural communities in his honor.
Ranging from $500 to $10,000, AgEnhancement Grants were established to support the wide range of projects necessary to build and promote stronger agriculture, forest products, commercial fishing and related industries.
Farmers’ Market Grants
Farmers' markets provide an important channel for Northeast producers to market and sell their products as well as connect with consumers. That's why we've seen a significant increase in these markets across the region over the past two decades. To support this important marketing channel, Farm Credit East offers Farmers' Market Grants up to $500.
