Can the GFAP Equipment and Physical Improvement Grant be used to purchase equipment to process industrial hemp into hemp concentrate to be used for medicinal, beverage, and food products?
GFAP Equipment and Physical Improvement Grant is intended to help small food retailers and grocery stores purchase equipment/make improvements to their stores to help them sell more nutritious and culturally appropriate foods. The processing of hemp and other agricultural commodities is not covered under this grant. The AGRI Value Added Grant is a more appropriate program for the project. Please see page 3 of the RFP for further details.
