It’s That Time of Year Again: Grant Applications are Now Being Accepted!

Several USDA programs are currently open for U.S. companies, nonprofits, and commodity groups to apply for grant funding with deadlines ranging from May through December.

Bryant Christie Inc. frequently works with our food, beverage, and agribusiness clients to pursue external funds that expand the scope and impact of their research and market development programs.

We’ve been providing grant writing and management services to agricultural cooperators throughout our 30-year history and have been successful at securing funding through several USDA Foreign Agricultural Service Trade Programs. More recently, our work has expanded to help our clients secure grant funding through other USDA programs, including those within the Agricultural Marketing Service, Rural Development, and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

Many of these programs are currently accepting applications, with deadlines ranging from May through October 2023.

We want to remind our clients (and potential clients) that BCI‘s grant management team has earned an excellent reputation for securing government funds. BCI can help develop projects from concept through proposal as well as serve as project managers post-award. Additionally, we can implement financial systems that prevent fraud and ensure all grant funds are expended.

To see an example of how BCI partners with industry to access and utilize grants to build markets around the world, please check out this case study on our work with the Brewer’s Association Export Development Program here.
