Farmers Market and Local Food Promotion Program (FMLFPP), Deadline: June 18, 2019
The 2018 Farm Bill reorganized FMLFPP as part of the newly created Local Agriculture Market Program (LAMP). As part of LAMP, FMLFPP is paired with the Value-Added Producer Grant (VAPG) program and provided with permanent funding – the core functions and operating practices of FMLFPP remain largely the same, however.
Administered by USDA’s AMS, the program provides grants on a competitive basis for a wide spectrum of direct-to consumer and local food marketing projects, and is administered as two subprograms: the Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP) and Local Food Promotion Program (LFPP). Both subprograms provide Capacity and Technical Assistance grants, as well as planning and implementation grants for food enterprises and producers who wish to expand their access to local food markets.
