$100,000 Rural Communities Grant Program Launched by UFA

The UFA Agricultural Community Foundation has launched a $100,000 Rural Communities Grant Program for projects that enrich education, recreation, and culture for the betterment of rural communities. 

The name is slightly different, but UFA’s commitment to rural communities stays the same. Over the past five years, the former UFA Rural Communities Foundation delivered a total of $500,000 to 20 community projects. The new UFA Agricultural Community Foundation grant will continue to provide $100,000 in annual funding to charities and non-profit organizations through the Rural Communities Grant Program.

Eligible charities, non-profits, and community service-oriented co-operatives are able to apply for a minimum of $10,000, up to a maximum of $100,000, for capital projects that support recreational, education and cultural facilities and programs in agricultural communities.

Applications are now open and will be accepted until August 31, 2024. Projects applied for must be within 200 km of a UFA location. Recipients will be announced in October 2024.
