Meat-processing applications accepted

The Wyoming

Department of Agriculture is accepting applications

for the Wyoming Meat Processing

Expansion Grant Program at http://agriculture.

On Sept. 1, Gov. Mark Gordon announced

the Wyoming Meat Processing Expansion

Grant Program to provide support

for Wyoming meat-processing facilities and

Wyoming citizens impacted by supply chain

disruptions and regional shutdowns of processing

facilities resulting from the COVID-

19 public health emergency. The governor

has appropriated $10 million in Federal

CARES Act funds to the program.

To facilitate the distribution of funds

through this grant as quickly as possible, the

WDA has prepared a simple, secure process

for interested parties to apply. Applications

will be accepted on a rolling basis until funds

have been expended and will be reviewed

for accuracy, eligibility and completeness

by Wyoming Business Council, Wyoming

Department of Agriculture and the Governor’s

Office. The program offers grants of

up to $500,000 to eligible businesses and

funds cannot make up more than 50 percent

of total costs involved with purchases.
