Frequently Asked Questions

The VAPG requirements and process may seem complicated and you may have many questions. Below are some of the more common questions with answers but feel free to contact us with any specific questions or concerns. We are here to help!

There are no upfront costs to you.  Our initial vetting process helps us select the clients we feel are best suited for a VAPG and therefore there are no out of pocket expenses for the grant application process.

VAPG grants are available up to $250,000 that can be used over a three year period.  Farmers may have more than one VAPG as long as each grant is for a different product.  If  you received the VAPG before, you may still qualify for an additional grant.

Grant program periods vary from year to year.  The current 2022 grant season closed May 2, 2022 but you can start preparing now for 2023 grants.  The 2023 program details have not yet been announced.  Contact us today to learn if you may be an eligible candidate for our services.

The best place to start is by contacting us.  We will be able to discuss your particular objectives and better define what programs may be suitable for you.
