Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapters in search of funding for their next animal science lab, community garden or any other worthy agricultural project, take note.

Tractor Supply Co., the largest rural lifestyle retail store chain in the United States, will soon be awarding “Grants for Growing” — starting at $500 — to qualifying FFA chapters.

To win a grant, FFA advisors must visit and complete the application. Submissions are due by Feb. 13, according to a press release.

“In partnership with the National FFA Foundation, Tractor Supply supports ‘Grants for Growing’ to serve FFA chapters who want to make a difference in their communities with critical project funding,” officials said in the press release.

“Grants are awarded to deserving FFA chapter initiatives in the spring.”

Grant recipients are selected based on proposals detailing how they will start or expand a project that will benefit their communities well into the future.

While the minimum competitive grant amount is $500 for participating chapters, there is no cap on the amount of funding a chapter may request for its project.
