Microgrant Program

What is the NHFC Microgrant Program?

The Microgrant Program was envisioned and organized by the NHFC Board of Directors. It utilizes the funds collected each October through the Change Within Reach Round-Up Program. This allows Co-op shoppers to donate to the Microgrant Fund by rounding their purchase amount up to the next highest dollar.

The donated funds received will be used to directly support local farmers that provide their goods to the Co-op. Microgrants are intended to help achieve the production of high-quality, sustainably grown food and increase overall access to local, healthy food for all our community members by providing funding to assist farmers with expanding their operations.

Who Can Apply for the Microgrant Program?

  • Local farmers who supply NHFC with produce, meats, eggs, or dairy.
  • Local producers who supply NHFC with wellness products.
  • Have supplied NHFC with products for at least one year or had $1,000 in total farm sales through NHFC this past year.
  • Must live within 100 miles of NHFC.

Applications for the 2023 program are due April 16th, 2023.
