Posted: Thursday, January 06, 2022

We are excited to announce that the North Carolina FFA Foundation has secured a $186,000 NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission Program Improvement Grant for 2022!  

North Carolina Agricultural Education Programs in middle and high schools may apply.  Approximately twelve programs will be awarded grants valued up to $15,000 each. All agricultural education programs may apply; however, programs that have not previously received a program improvement grant will be given priority in the selection process.

The completed application is due by 11:59 pm on February 17, 2022.  The completed application with all required signatures (including endorsement letters) should be submitted electronically as one PDF document to:

We appreciate the continued support of the North Carolina Tobacco Trust Fund Commission and the commitment they have shown to our programs, students, and teachers since we received our first grant in 2012.  We are especially excited to share that this year's grant puts the total amount of grant funds awarded to NC Agricultural Education at over $1 million!

We look forward to the significant impacts these funds will have as we continue to grow leaders, build communities, and strengthen agriculture.  Please contact me or Megan Blanke if you have any questions about the grant.
