SULA Grants:

Small grants for small shareholder farmers

We discovered many places lack funding and support – a significant hurdle to starting a small business. Through our Scaling Up Local Agriculture (SULA) grant, we help new businesses in the food or agriculture sector get over the initial hurdle by providing finances and guidance to bring their vision to reality.

The importance of supporting small shareholder farmers creates profound impacts on the individual and the community around them. In many places in the world, subsistence farming is how people provide the food they eat and sell what they can, when you provide them with support to help them earn more income and produce higher quality and more fresh food for themselves and their community. The impacts of creating more financial and food security are no small matter. The difference is whether a child is able to pay for school fees and whether the family goes to sleep hungry. Every little bit helps.

“Thank you for all you have done. You’ve made a significant impact on our farm and it was and is greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to invest in us.“

“I am so thankful for The Blue Atlas Project! 

When I applied for the grant, I honestly thought it would be a long, difficult process that would end fruitless, as I had applied for other grants in the past and was unsuccessful. 

Surprisingly, within less than a week of my application, Kali contacted me. She constantly kept me up to date with the status of my application. It wasn’t long before I received news of my approval! 

I can’t put into words the feeling I got when I received my grant! I’ve been gardening on a small scale for about two years. Kali and The Blue Atlas team have not only helped me to realize the unlimited potential of backyard farming but, through the help of their educational projects and the grant, have made growth and expansion a reality for my family and me.”

The Blue Atlas Project is the real deal!
