Chapter Grants

The North Carolina FFA Alumni Chapter Grant Program is designed to provide special program/project funding for FFA chapters with alumni affiliates.  Grant funds may be used for any type of chapter activity including, but not limited to, FFA member dues, FFA jackets, state convention registration, career development event registration, registration for camps and conferences, purchases from the National FFA Organization or any other appropriate chapter activity. Preference will be given to innovative ideas and projects.

Grant requirements:

  • If your application is selected, at least one FFA member and one Alumni member must attend the NC FFA Alumni Annual Meeting to receive the grant.
  • If your application is selected, a one-page report is required by December 31, 2021 that includes a short narrative description of project results, at least one photo, as well as receipts (if applicable). Failure to submit the report renders your chapter ineligible for the next grant cycle.

  • Only FFA chapters that have an active FFA Alumni chapter with state and national alumni dues paid in full by the application deadline will be eligible (Active: 10 annual members or 25 lifetime members).
