MDA staff will hold a technical assistance call for interested parties on Monday, Aug. 29 at 12 p.m. Those interested in joining the call may do so by visiting the Department’s website at: https://agr.mt.gov/GTA.
The GTA program was established by the legislature to strengthen and diversify Montana’s agriculture industry by developing new agricultural products and processes. GTA grants and loans are awarded by the Agriculture Development Council, a seven member committee appointed by the Governor. GTA funding requires the investment of at least $1 in matching funds for every $1 in grant or loan assistance received.
