Funding Opportunity for capital needs (buildings, equipment, etc.)


The Carrot Project's Vermont loan deadline is November 4, 2011. Funds can be used for working capital, capital needs such as equipment or buildings, or other improvements for production or value-added enterprises. On-farm, value-added enterprises are given preference, but off-farm enterprises are also eligible, providing inputs are sourced locally. Loan amounts of up to $35,000, for terms of 1–6 years, are available. The Carrot Project is pleased to announce that our loan funds serving farms and farm related businesses in Vermont will be accepting prequalified applications for our Fall deadline through November 4th, 2011 for loans of $35,000 or less.  There are two additional upcoming deadlines on January 6th, 2012 and March 2, 2012.
