JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Agriculture announced funding for processing of industrial hemp fiber. The department will award grants of up to $200,000 for reimbursement of expenses associated with the expansion of processing capacity for industrial hemp fiber in Missouri.
The Missouri General Assembly appropriated $700,000 to help build Missouri’s industrial hemp fiber processing infrastructure. Increased processing capacity will create additional marketing opportunities for Missouri industrial hemp producers.

Grant applications are due by Oct. 22, 2021, and grants will be awarded on or before Nov. 8, 2021. Expenses must be incurred between the date of award and March 1, 2022. All grant recipients must submit a reimbursement request and progress report no later than April 1, 2022, detailing activities and advancements toward project completion.
