In partnership with HumanLinks Foundation, Tilth is accepting applications to grant funds to farmers seeking financial assistance to sustain their farm operations and make necessary improvements for success. The goal of this grant program is to support organic and sustainable farmers practicing responsible and progressive methods such as sustainable soil management, crop diversification, pollination enhancing practices, climate change mitigation and environmentally-safe waste management practices.
This grant program is open to all Washington State farmers, but preference will be given to farmers located in the Snoqualmie, Sammamish and Snohomish valleys. Eligibility is limited to farmers who are sustainable or organic, and are seeking to expand and/or improve their operation, make environmental impact improvements, or become a more sustainable business.
Grant funds are available under the following areas of sustainability:
1. Environmental and sustainable impact

Applicants may select one or multiple areas of sustainability that fit their proposed project.
