Meat processors in Oregon have until Jan. 16, 2024 to apply for a share of $8.2 million in grant funding approved by lawmakers to expand options for local producers.

The grant is open to registered meat processors within the Beaver State who process Oregon animals or meat who are currently under federal Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS) inspection or plan to operate under the State of Oregon Meat Inspection Program.

The state Legislature approved the grant program to bolster the meat processing industry’s capacity in Oregon and further strengthen the state’s agriculture sector through projects that enhance capacity, efficiency, and innovation, according to a state Department of Agriculture release.

Details are available on the ODA website at https://oda.direct/meatprocessing.
