ANNAPOLIS, MD — The Maryland Department of Agriculture is accepting FY 2021 grant proposals for the department’s Animal Waste Technology Fund. Vendors, businesses, and individuals offering technologies that can demonstrate innovative, economically-feasible animal waste projects should apply.

Maryland’s Animal Waste Technology Fund has $3.35 million to invest in innovative technologies during FY 2021, which ends June 30, 2021. There are no maximum or minimum request amounts. Animal waste technology projects that are cost-effective, proven, innovative, and adaptable to Maryland will be considered.
