Arkansas Community Foundation is seeking proposals for projects that will increase Arkansans’ access to locally grown and produced foods and/or strengthen the local food ecosystem, including:

  • Programs that help Arkansas-based small farmers and food producers connect to markets, build operational capacity (for example, through training, certification, support for back-office financial management) or expand production.
  • Programs that pilot innovative strategies to connect Arkansans to more locally grown produce, either at market rate (for example, online farmers markets) or through emergency food distribution for those experiencing food insecurity.

Grants applications are due by July 1. Awards will range from $10,000 to $15,000.

A new statewide fund will support organizations working to improve the quality of life for LGBTQ Arkansans. The initiative is launching with philanthropic support from the Alice L. Walton Foundation and from Olivia and Tom Walton through the Walton Family Foundation.
