This program is authorized under the Montana Food and Agriculture Development (FADC)  Program as established in MCA 80-11-901 and is overseen by the Agriculture Development Council (Council) as described in MCA 90-9-202. 


The purpose of the Montana Food and Agriculture Development Center Program (FADC) is to increase the capacity of Montana’s farmers, ranchers and other agricultural entrepreneurs to serve both in- and out-of-state markets for food, farm-based renewable energy and other value-added agricultural products.

FADCs provide specialized technical assistance to Montana’s farmers, ranchers and value-added food, farm-derived renewable energy and other businesses that add value to agricultural products and resources.


Montana Department of Agriculture anticipates approximately $1,100,000 for the two-year period of this grant. There is a minimum request amount of $25,000. While there is no maximum amount limit for each applicaition, MDA does plan to award multiple awards from these funds. Additional funds may be allocated, if available, should an award be approved for renewal beyond the initial two years of this opportunity.


Eligible entities must be registered as a nonprofit organization and have documentation on file with the Montana Secretary of State’s office.

Activities must develop Montana’s food processing infrastructure, support emerging agriculture technologies, or enhance opportunities to expand Montana’s agricultural economy. 

Eligible activities also include technical assistance to existing and start-up Montana businesses and entrepreneurs pursuing opportunities in value-added agriculture, commodity processing infrastructure, food manufacturing, including the incorporation of emerging technologies and farm-derived renewable energy.

"Farm-derived renewable energy" means renewable energy produced from products developed by farmers and ranchers, as well as entrepreneurs, using Montana farm and ranch products.
