Organic Transition Grant
The CCOF Foundation, in partnership with GrubMarket, supports farmers making the transition to organic agriculture practices because we know that organic production is a proven solution to climate change, economic insecurity, and health inequities. We are giving $10,000 grants to underserved small farmers in California who are transitioning to organic practices.
The CCOF Foundation offers direct financial and technical assistance to organic farmers across the United States, regardless of their certifier affiliation.

In 2020, the CCOF Foundation partnered with Anheuser-Busch to allocate half a million dollars to farmers across the United States that were in the process of transitioning to organic through our Contract for Change partnership.

“I was on the verge of losing my farm.” These words haunted Maria Narez of Narez Organic Vegetables as she navigated the complexities of becoming certified organic.
