The UGA Small Business Development Center at Georgia Southern University invites all agricultural-based producers, business owners, and entrepreneurs to attend a no-cost training program on the Value Added Producer Grant.

This workshop is offered in partnership with USDA Rural Development, the Georgia Department of Agriculture, Georgia Grown, Georgia’s Rural Center and private grant writers to educate agricultural producers on the opportunities available through the Value Added Producer Grant (VAPG) program. Offered through USDA, the VAPG program helps agricultural producers enter value-added activities to generate new products, create and expand marketing opportunities, and increase producer income.

This program will be offered in-person on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2024, at 10 a.m. at the Georgia Grown Innovation Center in Metter, GA. There will also be an online session on Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024, at 2 p.m. for those who may be unable to attend the in-person session.
