FARMVILLE — Tractor Supply Co. has announced the national launch of the “Grants for Growing” program, which allows opportunities for local FFA chapters to make their communities a better place to live. 

“The deadline for local FFA chapters to sign up for this competitive grant process is February 15. The in-store event to raise funds by allowing Tractor Supply shoppers to donate $1 at checkout will run February 19-28,” a company press release stated.

The company, which has a Farmville location, said, in partnership with the National FFA Foundation, the program raises funds for local FFA chapter initiatives and awards minimum $500 competitive grants to participating chapters. “While $500 is the minimum grant amount that will be awarded to selected chapters, there is no cap on the amount of funding that a chapter can choose to request for its project.”
