AMSTA is an initiative working towards spreading knowledge on more effective ways to write grant proposals. The program will facilitate both in-person grant writing workshops in each US state and a webinar, and will also provide additional resources and material through the AMSTA website. Workshops will focus on effective grant-writing practices, with an emphasis on USDA’s Farmers Market and Local Food Promotion Programs. Please visit www.AMSTA.net
for additional information and to check the workshop schedule for your state. Participation in an AMSTA workshop does not guarantee that an application submitted to USDA will be funded.
