Last Chance to Qualify for Indiana’s Family of Farmers $2,000 Grants

For Immediate Release
INDIANAPOLIS (April 8, 2011) An April 19 conference call will be the last opportunity for community members and educators to qualify for the $2,000 grants available to them.

To qualify for the grants, which are intended to help improve educational agriculture-related events in Indiana communities, applicants are required to attend an informational session titled "Tips for Success: Telling the Story of Agriculture Through Educational Events" to learn more about the program.

The next and final session, hosted by the Indiana Family of  Farmers (IFOF), will be a conference call meeting at 2:30 p.m EDT on April 19. Those interested must RSVP to receive a call in number for the conference call.

The funds, made possible through the IFOF Ag Resource Committee, may be used by local event organizers to increase participation in educational or outreach events focused on food and fiber, like Ag Day celebrations. Grant applicants may also request monies to make capital improvements (like buying demonstration equipment) or safety upgrades (such as purchasing hand-washing stations).

To RSVP, contact Danica Kirkpatrick at or 765-494-9113 by Friday, April 15.
