USDA Regional Food Business Centers Program
The USDA Regional Food Business Centers will support a more resilient, diverse, and competitive food system. These Regional Food Centers will support producers by providing localized assistance to access local and regional supply chains, including linking producers to wholesalers and distributors. They will provide technical assistance needed to access new markets, access to federal, state, and local resources, and will assist small- and mid-sized producers in overcoming barriers to market access, with a focus on underserved farmers, ranchers, and food businesses. No match is required.
All applications to lead a Regional Food Center (“the applicant”) must come from an eligible representing a partnership and must be physically based in the region (excluding the tribal center, which has nationwide reach).
