The Missouri Department of Agriculture has received FY21 COVID stimulus funds from the USDA. As of April 28, 2022, MDA is accepting applications, from specialty crop producers, for reimbursement of projects that respond to COVID-19 impacts. This may include projects that assist farmworkers, projects to fund farmers, food businesses, and other relevant entities or projects that respond to supply chain disruptions.
The Department will consider grant awards up to a maximum of $10,000 for a specific project. Cash or in-kind matching contributions are not required.

Missouri Organic Association (MOA) is a non-profit membership organization founded in 1993 by the organic farming community of Missouri. From its beginning, MOA has dedicated itself to holding an annual organic conference for its members and the farmers/producers of all organic agriculture-related production. Throughout the year we work to support and empower farmers, business owners, and consumers with an interest in organic and sustainable agriculture. We do this through promotions on social media, holding educational workshops, quarterly newsletters, monthly email updates, and our annual conference.
