Urban Agriculture and Innovative Production (UAIP) Competitive Grants Program

The primary goal of the UAIP projects is to support the development of urban agriculture and innovative production. The UAIP grants support planning and implementation activities. Planning activities will initiate, develop, or support the efforts of farmers, gardeners, citizens, government officials, schools, members of tribal communities, and other stakeholders in areas where access to fresh foods are limited or unavailable. Implementation activities will accelerate existing and emerging models of urban and/or innovative agricultural practices that serve multiple farmers or gardeners. Innovation may include new and emerging, as well as indigenous or non-traditional agricultural practices.
