Dairy processor grant
The emphasis of this grant program is to foster innovation, improve profitability, and sustain the long-term viability of Wisconsin’s dairy processing facilities. The grant is designed to provide access to services and resources for proposed dairy processing plant projects that enhance or develop the current business, solve an existing problem at the plant, improve production or profitability or help the processor innovate. In 2012/2013 WI DATCP recognized on many occasions challenges and opportunities facing the dairy industry were often not addressed due to lack resources, time or expertise by members of the processing industry. At that time Wisconsin created the dairy Processor grant program with the intent that the industry could grow, prosper and innovate by allowing processors to access a small grant fund to bring on the necessary resources. As a flexible grant program processors are allowed to be creative and forward thinking as they look at present and long term challenges.
Eligible applicants must operate a licensed dairy processing plant engaged in pasteurizing, processing, or manufacturing milk or dairy products that is, or will be, located in Wisconsin.
