Education, Advocacy, and Grant Programs
Grant funding is available from the South Dakota Agricultural Foundation through two of our grant programs:
Building Rural Communities (BRC) grant program
Ag Innovators (AI) Youth Education grant program
These grants were developed to demonstrate the importance of rural communities and the value of organizations that work together to improve rural life.
The SD Ag Foundation encourages South Dakotans to start thinking of projects in their schools and communities that can empower future agricultural leaders and professionals. For 2018-19, the Foundation awarded grants to 19 youth ag education projects across South Dakota. Grant applications are being accepted now and are due Friday, November 15, 2019.
