Federal State Marketing Improvement Program (FSMIP)
The Agricultural Marketing Service awards approximately 25 to 35 grants each year averaging $50,000 per grant. Requests for FSMIP funds must be matched, at a minimum, on a one-on-one basis, from non-Federal sources which includes in-kind services. The deadline for submitting FY 2004 applications was February 13, 2004. Look for FY 2005 grant announcements near the end of 2004.
