USDA Rural Development/Northwest Agriculture Business Center
Other federal agency event

This important USDA program has benefited many producers throughout the Puget Sound region with working capital grant amounts ranging from less than $50,000 up to $250,000. The VAPG program helps agricultural producers enter into value-added activities related to the processing and marketing of new products. 

Carlotta Donisi, USDA Rural Development Business & Cooperative Programs Specialist, will provide an overview presentation of the entire program, how it works, and how to prepare an application. Melissa Moeller of Misty Meadows Farm, and a VAPG recipient and trainer, will team with Carlotta to answer your questions about the VAPG application process. And it's free to attend!

This course is supported, and funded in part, by the Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement, U.S. Department of Agriculture, under Award No. AO202501x443G015.
