Competitive grant awards up to a maximum of $24,500 will be considered for specialty crop projects lasting one to two years.

In addition, the Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) will consider projects of up to $100,000 lasting two to three years that can justify the need for large impacts and additional funding.
