Nov. 07, 2003 -- The American Lamb Board (ALB) announced in a press release this week that it has approved the creation of a Matching Grants Program to market American lamb. Competitive grants are available in any amount up to $50,000 and require a one-to-one match from the grant recipient.
Non-profit organizations are invited to submit proposals that expand or strengthen the market for American lamb. Conducting promotions, consumer educational events, field days or demonstrations to further disseminate information to lamb buyers or other creative lamb marketing programs will be considered. Projects which include a collaborative effort among industry organizations also are encouraged.
Grant applications must be received by the ALB before Jan. 4, 2004, with disbursements of the initial funding estimated in February. For more information and to download the application, go to: http://www.americanlambboard.org
