KENTUCKY OFFICE OF AGRICULTURAL POLICY
With the passage of Senate Bill 3, the management of the Kentucky Agricultural Development Board (KADB) and the Kentucky Agricultural Finance Corporation (KAFC) has been moved to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture under the name of the Kentucky Office for Agricultural Policy (KOAP).
The Kentucky Agricultural Development Fund, in statute, is administered by the Kentucky Agricultural Development Board. The mission of the board is to invest these funds in innovative proposals that increase net farm income and affect tobacco farmers, tobacco-impacted communities and agriculture across the state by stimulating markets for Kentucky agricultural products. This includes finding new ways to add value to Kentucky agricultural products and exploring new opportunities that will benefit Kentucky farms now and in the future.
Information and guidance in applying for county & state Agricultural Development Funds may be found on https://agpolicy.ky.gov/. KOAP staff is also available to assist applicants and county councils with any questions that arise. If you have further questions, please contact the Kentucky Office of Agricultural Policy at (502) 564-4627 or email@example.com.
