Grants to Nevada nonprofit organizations, tribal organizations, IHEs, agricultural associations, and individuals for projects that enhance the competitiveness of the local agriculture industry and offset the impacts of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Funding is intended for hiring personnel, holding an educational workshop, distributing product promotional materials, and planting specialty crops.

The Agriculture Act of 2018 (Farm Bill) authorized the U.S. Department of Agriculture(USDA) to partner with state departments of agriculture to enhance the competitiveness of growers of fruits, vegetables, and other horticultural crops in areas such as marketing, promotion, education, research, trade, and nutrition. A state department of agriculture is the agency, commission, or department of a state government responsible for agriculture within the state. Examples of initiatives that enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops include:

  1. Leveraging efforts to market and promote specialty crops (not a business, but crops themselves);
  2. Assisting producers with research and development relevant to specialty crops;
  3. Expanding availability and access to specialty crops; and
  4. Addressing local, regional and national challenges confronting specialty crop producers.

In addition to traditional Specialty Crop Block Grant Program (SCBGP) funding, H.R. 133 stimulus funds have been authorized by Congress to provide additional support to specialty crop producers and the food supply in response to COVID-19 impacts. 

Specialty crops are defined as (complete list available at https://www.ams.usda.gov/services/grants/scbgp/specialty-crop):

  • Fruits and vegetables,
  • Tree nuts,
  • Dried fruits, and
  • Nursery crops (including floriculture).
