Ag Grant

JCFF AG Grant Program

The Johnson County Fairgrounds Foundation (JCFF) is excited to launch our JCFF grant program. We believe this program will help bring education, youth, and agriculture together. Our grant program is here to promote Johnson County youth to be involved in our agricultural and rural way of life. We feel like when it comes to youth in agriculture, financial burdens can stop our youth from even having the opportunity to open the door to amazing opportunities.  We are striving to engage and promote Johnson County youth to be active in any type of agriculture related (field), by providing funding to help continue their journey.

Grant Funding from $50 to $500 will be awarded to qualifying grant applications. Applications will be accepted at any time with awards being given quarterly: January, April, July, and October at a JCFF board meeting.
