“Our board worked many years to develop sustainable funding to provide this program. We knew that there were many programs in need of more financial support to develop career-ready students in agriculture, and awarding $80,000 will give students in these schools some of the resources necessary to reach their full potential,” said Stacey Agnew, Nebraska FFA Foundation Executive Director.

Many of these grant recipients will be showcased on the Nebraska FFA Foundation website and social media throughout the next couple years. Applications for the 2021 Local Chapter Grant Program will open in April.
