Agricultural Economic Development Assistance Updated:08/2023

Our economic and business development service can be a valuable resource to assist your needs. The Division staff includes professionals with a wide range of expertise and experience as well as contacts in government, educational and private sectors. We can assist by linking agricultural/forestry related businesses with financial resources (including loans and grants), identify raw material supplies and directing such entities to various state sponsored business incentives. Assistance is available to local and out of state business interests as well as through community and economic development organizations.

Division staff can assist in the identification of various state sponsored incentive programs available to processors of agricultural, forestry and fisheries products. The more widely used programs provide reductions in state and local taxes. Other programs provide funding for pre-employment or on the job training.
