This project, conducted by West Virginia State University, will provide training and support to agricultural service providers (ASPs) so they can better assist farmers in participating in grant programs. Some of these grant programs are designed specifically for farmers while other programs fund collaborations between farmers and service providers. Participants will be provided with educational materials to use in their trainings, including evaluation and verification materials. They will also be supported with funds for travel required to conduct their educational programming related to grant writing and management. This project addresses a need identified in a prior statewide assessment that identified “accessing funding opportunity/grant writing” as one of the top five needs among WV farmers.
