INFB gives grants to Benton, Clinton, Fulton, Huntington, and Putnam counties
Indiana Farm Bureau has awarded its 2020 Development Grants. Benton, Clinton, Fulton, Huntington, and Putnam counties have been awarded grant money to create or expand programs that will provide education about agriculture.
INFB Second Vice President Isabella Chism says the grant program will allow county Farm Bureaus to create programing that will provide real value to their communities.
Benton County Farm Bureau was awarded $1,500 to launch an agriculture awareness campaign for movie-goers in the community. Video spots promoting agriculture will be shown before each movie at the Fowler Theater in Folwer, Indiana.
Clinton County Farm Bureau received $1,500 to launch a Rural Safety Education program. An interactive safety clinic at the Clinton County Fairgrounds will cover on-farm and off-farm dangers, grain bin safety, and more.
Fulton County Farm Bureau will use the $1,500 grant to bring an interactive game show about agriculture to fairgoers at the county fair.
Huntington County Farm Bureau was awarded $1,000 to host its second breakfast on the farm event. This year’s event will focus on a local dairy farmer.
Putnam County Farm Bureau received $1,500 to initiate a training program for the county volunteer fire departments on how to handle a grain bin emergency.
INFB’s program development grants are awarded annually.
