The state of Michigan just announced $15 million in relief funding for our state’s farms and food processors.

The money comes from the federal CARES Act.
$10 million in grants will be provided to food processors statewide with grants ranging from $10,000 to $200,000 each.
The other $5 million will go to farms with grants as low as $10,000 and as high as $50,000.
The funds will provide grants of up to $1,000 per employee to help with the costs of continuing work during the pandemic.
