The Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund, in statute, is administered by the Kentucky Agricultural Development Board. The mission of the board is to invest these funds in innovative proposals that increase net farm income and affect tobacco farmers, tobacco-impacted communities and agriculture across the state by stimulating markets for Kentucky agricultural products. This includes finding new ways to add value to Kentucky agricultural products and exploring new opportunities that will benefit Kentucky farms now and in the future.
The links to the left will provide some guidance to applying for county & state Agricultural Development Funds. KOAP staff is also available to assist applicants and county councils with any questions that arise. If you have further questions, please contact the Kentucky Office of Agricultural Policy at (502) 564-4627 or KOAP@ky.gov.
