Deadline changes for grant

The application deadline for funding for owners and operators of existing or new agricultural labor camps throughout Ohio has been moved to Sept. 30.

Through the WSOS Community Action Commission, owners and operators may use the funds to improve farm worker living quarters.

The maximum grant amount is $25,000 per camp annually, with a minimum grant amount of $5,000. Also, the program requires a dollar-for-dollar match, which cannot be in-kind contributions. The applicant’s match can be in the form of cash or commitments from lending institutions/processors.
