Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin
DATCP main number: 608-224-5012
The Buy Local, Buy Wisconsin (BLBW) competitive grant program was launched in 2008 to strengthen Wisconsin's agricultural and food industries. The grants work to reduce the marketing, distribution and processing hurdles that impede the expansion of sales of Wisconsin's food products to local purchasers.
There are no 2013 grant materials for grant offerings at this time. If the situation changes, we will post the application materials on this website and promote through normal publications.
