USDA has announced the availability of up to $75 million through the Local Meat Capacity Grant program, which is designed to build resilience in the meat supply chain by providing producers with more local processing options and strengthening their market potential. The program is targeted for processors with smaller-scale projects, like expansion or equipment updates.

“Local and regional meat processing is an important part of a resilient food supply chain. It not only provides producers with diverse processing options in their areas, but it also adds infrastructure, income and jobs in communities and provides more choices for consumers,” said USDA Marketing and Regulatory Programs Under Secretary Jenny Lester Moffitt.

Applying for a Local Meat Capacity Grant is a competitive application process. Applications will be accepted through July 19. More information on the program can be found at https://www.ams.usda.gov/services/grants/localmcap.
