MINNESOTA DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE: MDA Grant to help Schools, Early Care and Education Facilities Purchase Milk Coolers

Minnesota Department of Agriculture issued the following announcement on Feb. 14.

The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is awarding up to $50,000 in Agricultural Growth, Research and Innovation (AGRI) grants to eligible institutions to increase the use of Minnesota dairy in their nutrition programs.

The AGRI Milk Cooler Grant assists schools and early care and education organizations in purchasing milk coolers and related dairy equipment. Each school or organization may apply for up to $1,500.00 per milk cooler. A maximum of three proposals will be accepted for each organization or school district. Eligible expenses include the cost of the milk cooler and associated installation expenses.

“We had a great response to the first round of our AGRI Milk Cooler grants last fall which helped install 39 milk coolers across the state,” said MDA’s Assistant Commissioner Whitney Place. “This grant allows for investments in schools and early care and education organizations, provides nutritious dairy products to Minnesota’s children, and expands markets for the state’s dairy farmers.”

Applications for milk cooler grants must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. CDT on April 4, 2019. For more information and to apply, visit the MDA’s Milk Cooler Grant website.
