Local Chapter Grant Program
The Nebraska FFA Foundation, in it's third year, supports Nebraska agricultural education classrooms, FFA programs and individual student entrepreneurship Supervised Agricultural Experiences. Funds are provided by supporters of the Nebraska FFA Foundation and its general fund.
In 2018, 30 applications were received that totaled over $150,000. The Nebraska FFA Foundation was able to contribute just over $55,000 for these local chapters and their FFA members. Some programs receiving grants were purchasing new equipment for their shop, others were repairing greenhouses and yet others were starting school-based enterprises. Each demonstrated a financial need for the completion of these projects, but also found matching funds.
Grant requests may be any amount up to $10,000. Applications are accepted each year from May through June.
