Funding to promote American Lamb

The American Lamb Board (ALB) is now soliciting applications for the first round of its FY 2009 cooperative funding programs:: the Supplier Cooperative Funding Program and the Matching Grant Program.

The Supplier Cooperative Funding program is available for suppliers who are prepared to share the cost (dollar for dollar) of marketing American Lamb through retail or foodservice promotions.

The Matching Grant Program is available for any non-profit industry organization or association to engage in activities to promote American Lamb at the local level. The grants require a dollar for dollar cash match from the grant recipient. ALB strongly encourages applicants to seek collaborative partners such as suppliers, retailers or foodservice operators, promotions and festivals, research and education entities, etc.

The deadline for receiving applications for both programs is December 31, 2008. Click here to download the applications or contact Rae Maestas at (866) 327-5262 or rae@americanlambboard.org
