We are excited to share the 2023/2024 USDA Farm to Early Care and Education Mini Grants. These mini grants will help home based and center childcare providers to deepen their garden work with children and develop relationships with local farm to buy CT Grown products. 

This grant opportunity is now closed. Stay tuned as we will announce the recipients here in Feb 2024.

  • Thank you to all who applied for this program. It was a very competitive process with many amazing applications. Stay tuned for updates and more from our awardees and other opportunities to grow Farm to ECE in CT!
