HARRISBURG – The application period for the Very Small Meat and Poultry Processor Reimbursement Grant Program opened today at 8 a.m. and will close at 5 p.m. on Sept. 26, 2022, according to Sen. Elder Vogel (R-47), chairman of the Senate Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee.
The funding can be used for the start-up costs associated with meeting federal inspection and certification guidelines for very small meat processors, defined by state law as entities with sales of less than $2.5 million and less than ten employees, either in existence or that plan to meet such criteria once established.
