Mass EEA Awards Urban Agriculture Grants

Handprinter Dorrie Pizzella’s office, the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, has awarded $200,000 in grants to fund urban farm pilot projects across the state. These grants represent one of the first state-funded urban farming initiatives, awarding funds to projects in Boston, Everett, Lawrence, Lowell, Somerville, Springfield and Worcester.

Grant recipients include the City of Somerville, to build a raised bed and greenhouse structure at South Street Farm; the City of Everett, to launch a rezoning initiative for urban agriculture; the Food Project, to conduct a cost analysis of their urban and suburban farms in collaboration with the Dudley Street Neighborhood initiative, and many more!
