Expense is often given by farmers as a reason for not implementing safety initiatives. Successful Farming and Farm Safety 4 Just Kids have teamed up to help eliminate this excuse. For seventeen years the program has awarded small grants to farmers to seek out new ways of making positive changes on their farm. Ten grants of up to $250 will be awarded again this year and is open to all farmers.
The application process is simple and the deadline is September 3rd. To apply, write one-page explaining your farm safety improvement project, how it impacts the lives of those in your family, and an estimated budget.
