Specialty Crop Block Grant Programs

The Specialty Crop Block Grant Program funds Louisiana projects that solely enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops through promotion and research development programs that serve farmers and consumers through state trade shows, retail promotions, chef demonstrations, media advertising, education and research. The intent is to fund projects that can produce the highest degree of measurable benefits to Louisiana specialty crop producers in relation to each dollar spent.
