DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary
of Agriculture Bill Northey today
announced that the Iowa Department
of Agriculture and Land Stewardship
is accepting applications for grant
funding through the Specialty Crop
Block Grant program. The grants
are available to support projects that
enhance the competitiveness of specialty crops grown in Iowa.
The final funding level for the
program this year has not yet been
finalized by the USDA Agricultural
Marketing Service, which administers the program, but Iowa received
$307,610 in funding in 2014 and it
is anticipated the state will receive a
similar level in 2015.
“The Specialty Crop Block Grant
funds can support food safety, research and marketing efforts that
will encourage Iowans to choose the
products that are produced right here
in our state,” Northey said. “Specialty crops are a very important
part of Iowa agriculture as they allow farmers to diversify and give
customers access to locally grown
products.”
Grant funds shall be used for
projects that solely enhance the
competitiveness of specialty crops
that benefit the specialty crop industry as a whole and will not be awarded for projects that directly benefit a
particular product or provide a profit
to a single organization, institution,
or individual.
Iowa agencies, universities, institutions, and producer, industry,
and community based organizations
are all eligible to apply for funding
to enhance the competitiveness of
specialty crops. In addition, single
organizations, institutions, and individuals are encouraged to participate
as project partners.
Grant awards will be considered
up to a maximum of $24,000 and
projects can have a duration of up to
30 months (2 ½ years).
“Specialty Crops” that are eligible under this program are fruits
and vegetables, tree nuts, dried fruits
and horticulture and nursery crops,
including floriculture. Both fresh
and processed specialty crops are
eligible.
Proposals must be received by
IDALS on or before 4:00 p.m. on
Friday, May 1, 2015. For more
information visit the IDALS Spe-
cialty Crop Block Grant program at
the Department’s web site at www.
IowaAgriculture.gov/Horticulture_
and_FarmersMarkets/specialtyCropGrant.asp.
The Department is again establishing a Review Committee to help
review, evaluate, and make recommendations on grant proposals submitted to the Department.
Those interested in participating
in the Review Committee should
have knowledge of specialty crops,
and/or grant writing or grant management experience, and the ability to devote the necessary time to
complete the review process. Additional information about reviewer
responsibilities, meeting dates and
an application form can also be
found at www.IowaAgriculture.gov/
Horticulture_and_FarmersMarkets/
specialtyCropGrant.asp.
Applications to participate in the
Reviewer Committee are due Friday,
March 27, by 4 p.m.
In addition, to ensure that funds
are used in the most efficient manner possible, the Department is asking specialty crop stakeholders and
organizations to submit public comments on program priorities. The
comments will help the Department
identify priorities; establish the criteria used to evaluate the projects proposed for funding, and to determine
how the reviews are conducted.
Iowans interested in submitting
comments about the program can do
so online by emailing [email protected] or by mail to Horticulture
and Farmers Market Bureau, Iowa
Department of Agriculture and Land
Stewardship, 502 East 9th, Des
Moines, Iowa, 50319. Comments
received by May 1, 2015 will be presented to the review committee to
assist in prioritizing projects.
“The Specialty Crop Block Grant
program has been a tremendous benefit to Iowa and it is important we
understand the priorities of the specialty crop producers as we consider
this year’s applications,” Northey
said. “The public comments will allow us to hear from all segments of
Iowa’s specialty crop industries and
give them a means to participate in
the decisions surrounding this program.”

The Hardin County Community
Endowment Foundation (HCCEF)

FAFSA now available
Des Moines – January is more
than the start of the New Year for
college-bound students and their
parents; it also marks the availability
of the Free Application for Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 20152016 academic year. The FAFSA
is a standardized application used
to determine eligibility for federal
grants, loans and work-study funds
from the federal government. In addition, many colleges and states, including Iowa, use FAFSA information when determining eligibility for
institutional and state financial aid
programs.
Completing and filing the FAFSA
is not as difficult as many people
think. “We encourage students and
parents to complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov rather than
filing a paper form because the help
features and built-in edits reduce applicant error,” explained Karen Misjak, executive director of the Iowa
College Student Aid Commission
(Iowa College Aid). “With all of the
recent enhancements to the online
form, it only takes about 30 minutes
to complete.”
To help Iowa families, Iowa College Aid offers the following FAFSA
filing tips.
File the FAFSA whatever your financial situation. Even if you do not
think you will qualify for need-based
financial aid, you should still file the
FAFSA. Many colleges require that
you file the FAFSA to be considered
for institutional aid, and in addition,
you are required to complete a FAFSA to be eligible for federal Stafford
loans. Completing the FAFSA does
not obligate you to accept any of the
aid offered.
Never pay to file the FAFSA.
You can file the FAFSA for free at
www.fafsa.gov. Reputable free resources, including Iowa College
Aid, are available to help. In addition, more than 70 College Goal
Sunday events will be held throughout Iowa to provide one-on-one assistance with FAFSA filing. Dates
and locations of the events can be
found at http://www.iowacgs.org/
en/201415_events/.
