NASHVILLE — Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapters in search of funding for their next animal science lab, community garden or other noteworthy agricultural project, take note.

According to a press release, Tractor Supply Company, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the U.S., has launched its third annual Grants for Growing campaign — a competitive grant program designed to support local FFA chapters across the country that want to make a difference in their communities through sustainable agriculture-focused projects.

“To qualify for a grant, FFA advisors should visit and submit an application by Wednesday,” officials said in the release. “The submission process requires entrants to provide a detailed proposal, including how they will start, maintain or expand on a project that will benefit their communities.”
