ITHACA, N.Y. — New York farmers, extension personnel, technical service providers, and organizations in New York working with the agricultural community are encouraged to apply for a mini-grant through New York Soil Health, which is now accepting applications.
Grant awards are up to $2,500 for eligible program applications and $500 maximum for travel grant requests. Applications are due by April 21, 2023, with decisions announced on May 1, 2023.
