New England Farmer Microgrants Program

The New England Farmer Microgrants Program

Providing Direct Support to Farmers in New England

Launched in 2020, the New England Farmer Microgrants Program (NEFMP) provides direct financial support to farmers across New England. The program seeks to address some of the key barriers faced by farmers in the region: access to farmland, farm succession/transfer planning, and the adoption of regenerative farming practices.  

New for the 2023 grant cycle, NEFMP will consist of two separate funding opportunities. Most funds will be awarded as $10,000 grants through the Western New England Regenerative Livestock Farming conservation partnership project, aimed at livestock producers in select counties. A smaller number of awards will be granted through the Farmland Access, Succession, and Transfer Support funding opportunity, in amounts of $5,000 each, for farmers anywhere in New England. 

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED

The New England Farmer Microgrants Program is one of American Farmland Trust’s grant programs providing direct financial support to farmers. For farmers outside of New England, visit our Brighter Future Fund.
