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.
