Farmers Market Promotion Program

The Farmers Market Promotion Program (FMPP) was created through a recent
amendment of the Farmer-to-Consumer Direct Marketing Act of 1976. The
grants, authorized by the FMPP, are targeted to help improve and expand
domestic farmers' markets, roadside stands, community-supported
agriculture programs, and other direct producer-to-consumer market
opportunities. Approximately $1 million is allocated for Fiscal Year 2006
for the FMPP, with the requirement that the maximum amount awarded for any
one proposal cannot exceed $75,000. Entities eligible to apply include
agricultural cooperatives, local governments, nonprofit corporations,
public health corporations, economic development corporations, regional
farmers market authorities, and Tribal government.

Proposals are due May 1, 2006.
