SEMAP’s 2019 TIE Grant application period is CLOSED!
The Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership (SEMAP) is pleased to offer our 3rd year of TIE Grants – an innovative funding program for farmers in Bristol, Plymouth, and Norfolk counties of Massachusetts.
SEMAP’s TIE (Technology, Innovation, and Excellence) Grant program encourages local farmers to trial new equipment, implement new farm systems, and address challenges farmers in the region collectively face. The TIE Grant Program is intended to lower the economic barriers to innovation, with grants ranging from $500 to $3,000 depending on the merits of the project.
Farmers are innovative – and that’s why they are best situated to come up with creative ideas for the problems they experience day-to-day on the farm. With TIE Grant funding, SEMAP aims to enable our local farms to create solutions locally, and share the solutions with the region’s farming community to increase local knowledge, capacity, and resilience.
