2012 Youth Livestock Grant

Indiana State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) is providing grants to Indiana 4‐H and FFA members through Indiana’s 501(c)(3) for the purchase of breeding stock and development of breeding programs.

The breeding stock can be used to start a livestock enterprise or add animals to an existing operation. Resources to develop a breeding program or improve the quality of an existing breeding program are also eligible for the 4‐H/FFA youth livestock grant.

Only Non‐Profits with 501(c)(3) status are eligible to apply for fund for this program.

The Non‐Profits with 501(c)(3) status will solicit applications from eligible 4‐H and/or FFA members. The Non‐Profits with 501(c)(3) status will then select 4‐H/FFA members projects they wish to request funds for. The 501(c)(3) organization will then apply for funds from ISDA. ISDA will then award grant funds to the Non‐Profits with 501(c)(3) status.

In turn the Non‐Profits with 501(c)(3) status must then award the grant funds to an Indiana youth that is currently a 4‐H and/or FFA members in good standing are eligible for the ISDA 4‐H/FFA Youth Livestock Grant. Eligible projects under this grant award include purchasing (Dairy, Beef, Sheep, Swine, Goats, Rabbits or Poultry) breeding stock, purchasing resources to develop a breeding program or improving the quality of an existing breeding program with one of these species. The youth must reside in Indiana and any livestock or resources purchased using the grant funds must be located on a farm in Indiana.

Maximum award amount:  beef/dairy = $500 — sheep/swine/goat = $150 — poultry/rabbit = $75
