On Friday, the application period closes for the Meat and Poultry Supply Chain Resiliency Grants. In the first round of these grants, DATCP got 100 applications requesting more than $4.4 million in funding. Because of the high demand, the state created the Meat and Poultry Supply Chain Resiliency Grants -- up to $10 million in ARPA funds to continue to grow Wisconsin's meat processing industry and improve the long-term viability of the state's livestock industry, explains DATCP Secretary Randy Romanski. Wisconsin meat processors can get grants of up to $150,000. Applications for the grant were released in May, and the application period will close this Friday, Aug. 19.
