Past Grant Projects and Funded Farms

Since 2012 FACT has awarded 157 grants to farmers totaling $355,940 to improve farm animal welfare, expand humane farming, and support capital and operational work done on dozens of farms. In 2019 alone we distributed over $94,000 to 38 farms. Our 2019 Animal Welfare Certification Grants and Capacity Building Grants were generously underwritten by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Typical past grant projects have focused on fencing, watering systems, or animal shelters in some way.  Farmers have also completed a variety of unique projects involving constructing cattle scratching stations, planting trees to improve access to shade, and purchasing equipment for fly control.  Please view a complete list of past projects for reference.
