County Fair Grants, Deadline Nov. 15

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) announced a competitive grant opportunity for Michigan’s county fairs to make building and other capital improvements to their fairground facilities.  Grant proposals must be received by MDARD no later than Friday, November 15, 2013.

The grants will range from $1,000 to $20,000 and will require a dollar-for-dollar cash match from the county fair.  This grant program provides additional access to funds for county fair officials to help make needed improvements to their fairground facilities; including but not limited to structural improvements or other renovations to buildings.

The submitted grants will go through a competitive grant process and be reviewed by an evaluation committee.

Eligible applicants include fairs that are incorporated under Act 80 of 1855 or county owned and operated fairs operating under Act 11 of 1929 and county fairs that have submitted all required year-end reports for the prior two years.
