The Ukraine Horticulture Business Development Project (UHBDP) has announced the launch of the new grant program Small Environmental Grants to support horticulture business in Ukraine with a budget of CAD 125,000. “We would like to announce a new program of small grants… If we talk about the producers of fruits, vegetables and honey, then we are implementing this project in four southern regions of Ukraine, in which this production is focused: Mykolaiv, Kherson, Odesa and Zaporizhia regions. However, we understand that IT companies are located in different cities, therefore, we will accept applications from other regions of Ukraine for this part of the program,” UHBDP project manager Dmytro Nikolaev told reporters at the third Organic Ukraine 2019 International Congress on Friday.
UHBDP sees producers of honey, vegetables, fruits, berries and other producers of fruits and vegetables with and without organic certification, suppliers of equipment and IT tools among the program participants.
A mandatory condition for participation is an officially registered business.
The amount of grant assistance is from CAD 8,000 to CAD 12,500 for one project. The results of the grant competition will be announced by September 2019. Applications for participation in the competition can be submitted on the project’s website from April 1 to April 15, 2019.
