      I am attempting to start a poultry farm. I have all the necessary things required. Is there a grant for this?

        Jessica Dinsmore

        Hi Udeme,

        There very well may be a grant for that! If you scroll through the post and click on the links, you can search by keyword to find grants that are relevant to you. Some grants may be less about the industry, and more focused on the applicant demographic, so keep that in mind as well. If you haven’t already, read through the post for a more detailed explanation of available grant types and how to find them. We’ve jam-packed the post with some really great resources–I hope that helps! Good luck with your poultry farm.
