Agricultural Literacy Grant


The new Agricultural Literacy Grant was created to help fund your most creative ideas to teach through a lens of agriculture. Submit your great idea to enhance your classroom learning and let New York Agriculture in the Classroom support your endeavor to include agriculture as a context for learning.

A single Agricultural Literacy Grant proposal can be anywhere between $10 to a maximum of $1,200. It will be important to note in your submission any matching funds available in your community for your project. There is a possibility that the selection committee may award partial funding on a project.

Schools will have one year from the date of grant acceptance to expend their funds. Two reports will be due over the course of the year, one in October of 2019 and a final report in April 2020.


Proposals for the Agricultural Literacy Grant can include, but are not limited to:
