The State of Illinois will provide funding for educational projects through community colleges and Extension programs for farmers to increase the production of locally grown foods.

The state’s Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity backs initiatives that include economic development projects to encourage farmers to sell their produce locally, as well as programs in Illinois high schools to educate agriculture teachers about new food safety standards and growing practices to help them enhance their curriculum.
