Blue Hill Peninsula Community Food Grants
Each year, MFT awards grant funds for projects that promise to increase food sustainability and improve the health and well-being of Blue Hill Peninsula residents.
In addition to meeting these goals, successful applications will be those that place an emphasis on creating a more just and sustainable local food system through food production, education or related projects. High priority is placed on projects that can also demonstrate benefit to the community.
Grants are available for nonprofit organizations, schools, community groups, or individuals. Projects or programs must be carried out in the towns of Blue Hill, Sedgwick, Penobscot, Castine, Orland, Surry, Deer Isle, Stonington, Brooksville, or Brooklin.
Applications will open January 1, 2017 and be due Tuesday, February 28 at midnight.
Decisions and grant awards will be made by March 31, 2017.
