Public-Private Partnership Investment Fund Program

The Local Food and Farm Council is thrilled to announce the availability of funds through our Public-Private Partnership Investment Fund Program. Thanks to the unwavering dedication of the 34th Legislature of the Virgin Islands, this initiative represents a significant step forward in addressing the diverse challenges our farming and fishing sectors regularly encounter.

With the visionary support of Governor Albert Bryan, Jr., in approving the funding allocations for Bill No. 35-0003 (Act No. 8700) to fund the mandates and additional recommendations of the Virgin Islands Agricultural Plan, significant strides have significantly advanced the mission of the Council. Through this legislation, $500,000.00 has been earmarked from the General Funds to bolster available funding, establishing two vital components of the Plan: the Public-Private Partnership Investment Fund and the Farmer’s Grant Matching Fund. Moreover, the Council’s adoption of the Plan has extended access to these funds to individuals in the fishing sector, broadening the scope of support to include agriculture and fisheries initiatives.



Our objective is to empower and equip farmers and fishers with the essential resources to thrive and succeed in their respective industries. Through strategic investments and collaborative partnerships, we remain steadfast in our commitment to promoting food sustainability and security, enhancing productivity, and fortifying the resilience of agriculture and fisheries in our territory for generations to come.

We invite you to seize this opportunity for support and advancement by submitting the enclosed Application for Funding Assistance. Whether you are embarking on establishing your farming or fishing enterprise, a seasoned professional seeking to expand operations, or a farming or fishing organization, we enthusiastically welcome applications from all stakeholders within the agricultural and fishing communities.
