TEXAS–Tractor Supply Company continues its efforts to support youth across the country by kicking off the year with its annual Grants for Growing campaign. The fundraiser, which will coincide with National FFA Week, supports hundreds of unique and sustainable agricultural projects implemented by FFA chapters nationwide.
From Feb. 19 to March 1, donations can be made in store or online at TractorSupply.com. Each grant will fund projects within the same state the funds were donated in.
Grants for Growing first launched in 2016 by Tractor Supply and its ability to fund FFA projects has increased each year.
FFA chapters will submit applications later this spring with detailed proposals. In the past, funds have been requested to purchase vegetation, trees, seed, chickens, feed, mulch and tools for projects ranging from livestock shelters, beekeeping and aquaculture labs.
Grants can be up to $5,000 and will be awarded to chapters Aug. 1. For more details about the program, visit FFA.org/GrantsforGrowing.
