LEI Awarded Two USDA Specialty Crop Block Grants

In an ongoing effort to support Michigan’s food processing industry, LEI submitted two applications for grants for the 2015-2016 USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant (SCBG) program administered in Michigan through the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. ┬áBoth grant applications were approved and contractual documents were completed in October 2015.

During this grant period, LEI will continue our study to assess water reduction and reuse strategies and assess the feasibility of a revolutionary wastewater disposal method rarely used in Michigan.
