The Brighter Future Microgrants Program (BFMP) will assist farmers in successfully launching, growing and sustaining farms in the face of forces impacting the food and agricultural system, including the COVID-19 pandemic, changing markets, severe weather and climate change.  Grants are intended to leverage other resources and make a real difference for farmers to improve farm viability, access land, improve land security, facilitate farm transfers and increase resilience to climate change.  A generous gift from Tillamook County Creamery Association's All For Farmers Campaign has enabled the launch of the Brighter Future Microgrants Program. 

See BFMP Guidelines for eligibility requirements and a detailed program description. Farmers seeking a grant should submit a completed Brighter Future Microgrants Application Package to American Farmland Trust (AFT).

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning October 12, 2020. Applications may be submitted electronically to brighterfuture@farmland.org.
