About the Grants
RAFI-USA’s Farmers of Color Network Fund provides support to farmers for new and innovative agricultural projects and ideas that will increase farm viability, support community food sovereignty efforts, preserve traditional and cultural farming practices, as well as assist local food economies. These grants are largely focused on farm infrastructure projects such as refrigeration, fencing, structures, equipment, and other improvements that increase the sustainability and resilience of farmers who are members of the Farmers of Color Network.
Between 2020 and 2022, we have awarded $603,300 to 90 grantees in nine states and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
