HSF will award grants to farmers for agricultural projects that help heal our environment, heal our communities, and that provide nutrient dense food, free of chemicals, to heal our bodies. Grants can be requested in amounts from $5,000 to $100,000 by small and mid-size farmers located in the United States, however, we expect that the initial grants will be awarded to farmers in the Midwest. Farmers must have been in business for at least three years prior to applying for a grant. Grants will be awarded based on demonstrated need and how well the proposed project aligns with HSF’s mission. Further, the applicant must demonstrate how the grant will improve the farm’s long-term profitability. Farmers are eligible for one grant in any 12-month period.
