AUSTIN -- In an ongoing effort to sustain Texas’ standing as a powerhouse of agricultural productivity, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples reminds young farmers and ranchers that applications for the next round of Young Farmer Grants are being accepted. The deadline for applying for this round is Friday, May 3. The grant program is funded entirely by farmers.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average age of Texas farmers and ranchers is 57, with only 6 percent of them under the age of 35. Awarded in amounts up to $10,000 each, the young farmer grants are available to agricultural producers between the ages of 18 and 45 who will create or expand agricultural businesses in Texas. Eligible applicants must be able to make dollar-for-dollar matching expenditures to sustain, create, or enhance agricultural operations. Awards range from $5,000 to $10,000 and are funded by agricultural vehicle registration fees paid for by farmers.
