On Friday March 15th, USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service announced a cooperative agreement with Virginia. This investment in supply chain infrastructure provides $6.3 million in supply chain grants under the Resilient Food Systems Infrastructure Program (RFSI).

Using RFSI funding, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) will fund projects that increase cold storage and flash freezing facilities, provide more transportation options, modernize equipment for value added processing, and expand capacity for aggregation. The state’s priorities are informed by stakeholder engagement and outreach to underserved producers to better understand their needs.

Virginia is accepting applications for infrastructure grant funding through April 15, 2024.
