MDARD launches new food and wastewater grant program
The “Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development” is launching a new grant program to help agriculture businesses comply with environmental regulations
The “Wastewater Infrastructure Fund Program” is geared toward Michigan-based agriculture and food processors under state oversight.
The grants offer up to 2-million-dollars per project.
That’ll help pay for costs, including site review, equipment, and sampling analysis.
Grant recipients will have to hit milestones like receiving a permit from the state’s environmental regulators, having an approved discharge management plan, and confirmation of compliance.
The application period is now open. It will last until the 30-million-dollars set aside for the grants run out.
