AFT Awards over $1 million from the Brighter Future Fund to Farmers

American Farmland Trust Monday announced that over 200 farmers would be receiving grants of up to $5,000 each through the Brighter Future Fund, and its regional subsidiaries. 

The grants will be used to help improve farm viability, enable farmers to access, transfer or permanently protect farmland or adopt regenerative agricultural practices. 

In total, over $1 million will be awarded to farmers located across 44 states and the territory of Puerto Rico. 

Ashley Brucker of American Farmland Trust says, “These grants are going to improve the lives of farmers across America.”

Since 2020, AFT has provided, in total, approximately $3.5 million in grants directly to more than 2,000 farmers across the nation for pandemic relief, increased resilience, land access and enhanced viability. 

The Brighter Future Fund helps farmers launch, grow and sustain farms in the face of forces impacting the food and agricultural system, including the COVID-19 pandemic, changing markets, severe weather and climate change.
