City Market is now accepting applications for their 2019 Co-op Seedling Grants program! This program, now in its sixth year, awards funding to community organizations working to strengthen the local food system. In 2018, we awarded $30,000 to seven organizations including Age Well, Community Health Centers of Burlington, Howard Center, Milk with Dignity Standards Council, United Way of Lamoille County, UVM Plant and Soil Science, and Winooski Partnership for Prevention.
This year, they will allocate a minimum of $40,000 for this round of grants (pending Board approval of the awards). Funds will be distributed to grant recipients in March 2020 during our annual grants celebration held at the Co-op.
To learn more, visit their website and submit your application by June 28, 2019 at 5pm.
