Agricultural Funding

Mountain View County recognizes the need for funding Agriculture Related Projects to serve the needs of the County's Agricultural population. The Agricultural Service Board (ASB) has a grant program for Agricultural Related Projects that support Agricultural development through education, youth engagement, events and other related projects. This funding is available to groups, associations or non-profit societies that have been in existence for at least two years and operate within Mountain View County.

Requests must be made in writing and include a statement describing the Agricultural related project and the benefit it will provide. The approved funding may be used for education, supplies, contracted services, scholarships, sponsorship, equipment, installation and site preparation.

The Agricultural Grant Funding is now closed for 2018.
