Specialty Crop Block Grant

December 27, 2020

The Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBGP) FY 21 Request for Proposal (RFP) has just been posted on the Hawaii Awards & Notices Data System site here: 

According to the solicitation description, “The purpose of this RFP is to administer a competitive grant process to award federal funds in 2021. The primary goal in this grant program for the HDOA is to support projects that could provide the highest measurable benefits or return-on-investment to the specialty crop segment in Hawaii. To be eligible for a grant, projects must enhance the competitiveness of Hawaii grown specialty crops in either the domestic or foreign markets. Preference will be given to projects that measurably increase the production and/or consumption of specialty crops, foster the development of fledging crops and organic operations for Hawaii specialty crop farmers.”

The closing date for this RFP is February 12, 2021. If you have any questions, please send Sharon Hurd an email at sharon.k.hurd@hawaii.gov. All questions will be answered after January 4, 2021. A Zoom meeting is currently scheduled for January 14, 2021 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.
