WEDC, DATCP Expanding Funding for International Market Access Grants to Agribusinesses
2 Mar 2022
The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP), in collaboration with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), invites Wisconsin agribusinesses to apply for International Market Access Grants (IMAG) through April 1, 2022. The additional funding for these grants to agribusinesses is provided by the Wisconsin Initiative for Agricultural Exports (WIAE), which was proposed by Gov. Tony Evers in his 2021-23 biennial budget. The funds were recently released by the Joint Finance Committee.
“Global demand for Wisconsin agricultural products continues to grow,” said WEDC Secretary and CEO Missy Hughes. “It’s vital that Wisconsin farmers and agribusinesses take advantage of these resources to get their products into new markets around the world.”
