Good Afternoon Producers –
Attached is a flyer with information regarding the upcoming workshops for the 2019 Producer Support Grant.

This year, we are holding two workshop times – please attend the time that will best accommodate your schedule.
Grant Info Workshops: Thursday, May 2nd at 10 AM and then 7 PM at the Halifax Extension Office
VCE will be going over the guidelines and project details – and applications will be available that day to take home with you. The date we will begin accepting applications is Monday, June 10th at 8 a.m. at the Halifax Ext Office.
I have scheduled the Halifax workshops to give producers over a month to plan and complete their applications before being able to turn them in starting June 10th. We are expecting a large turnout for this 2019 program!
We strongly recommend attending a workshop and be in touch with me in completing your application.
Please call or email with any questions you have before May 2nd –
