For the fifth consecutive year, Tractor Supply Company (TSC) will provide grants to FFA chapters through its Grants for Growing program. Chapters have the opportunity to win a grant up to $5,000!

Grants for Growing is a competitive grant program for middle and high school FFA chapters that are developing and improving project-based or experiential learning opportunities for students. FFA chapter advisors and members can apply for funding to support one of three areas: Grow Your Classroom, Grow Your FFA Chapter or Grow Your Ag Awareness.

Funds for this program are raised by TSC during an in-store fundraiser that coincides with National FFA Week. By donating at the checkout, customers can help the next generation of leaders who will change the world. Funds raised will be awarded as grants within the states the funds were donated.

Important dates:

  • Submit grant applications: March 2 – May 15, 2020
  • Award notifications: Aug. 1, 2020

Anson FFA in Wadesboro, N.C., was one of more than 1,200 chapters to win a grant in 2019.
