The Nebraska FFA Foundation Local Grant Program provides funding for local agriculture classrooms, FFA programs and individual students Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) (grades 7th-11th) or School-Based Enterprise SAE which have a clearly defined and described financial need. Grant request may be any amount up to $10,000 for agriculture classrooms and FFA programs, and $2,000 for student SAE's. The grant application period will be open until June 30, 2023.  All work on grants will occur during the school year. Grant funding will be awarded after documentation is completed.
