Grants For Promoting Pennsylvania Hemp Products
Pennsylvania’s Agriculture Secretary recently announced a funding program that aims to help boost sales, export or consumer awareness of hemp products made in the state.
Prior to prohibition, hemp was an important crop in the state. 2017 marked the first year in seven decades industrial hemp was (legally) cultivated and harvested in Pennsylvania. Last season, 500 growing sites and 60 processors were licensed statewide and applications for this year’s season opened in December last year. Growing permit applications will be accepted until April 1, while processing permit applications will continue to be accepted throughout the year.
