Available farm grants for women. For single women or even female partners looking to homestead or farm, here is information on grants that are available for women farmers. There are grants for helping with a down payment to purchase a farm and get you started and to help transfer land from retiring farmers to new farmers starting out.
There are even government loans for purchasing a farm and operating expenses. If you are already farming and want to be certified organic there are grants that can help pay or defer the costs of the certification. There are even loans for women with small businesses. There are other grants and loans available as well. Most of these are for women/socially disadvantaged farmers. You can read more about them Chron and there is a pdf with a list of some of the available grants and loans and where to apply for them from Agrisk, see the pdf here.
So don’t let the fact that you are a single woman or that there is no man involved make you think you can not get these grants and or loans, they are made specifically with you in mind. This is a great list of information for any woman wanting to farm or homestead that may not have the resources need to do it on her own.
