The Matching Enterprise Grants for Agriculture (MEGA) Program helps with business improvement on new farms. The Program provides selected participants with business planning and limited technical assistance, and then provides funds for farm improvement strategies. Grants of up to $10,000 are available from this Program on a one to one cash-matching basis. It is the objective of the MEGA Program to assist beginning farmers in their first through fifth year of business who aspire to develop their farms into commercially viable operations. Funds are typically used for equipment, infrastructure or other capital improvements needed to implement strategies recommended through the planning process.
