Reduced Fee “Scholarship”

Reduced Fee Survey

Questions to assess if a farm, manufacturer, or processor has a need for reduced certification fees. We have limited funds to offset the full price of the certification for companies that can’t afford the certification.

  • Legal business name of the company interested in certification.
  • What is your first and last name?
    Help us understand why you are seeking a scholarship. The normal cost of the certification is $2200 + Inspector travel expenses. Our Scholarship Fund allows us to reduce the cost you pay to $400 plus inspector travel expenses. If you are a BIPOC led farm the cost is free. If you are a grower in Humboldt County the cost is free thanks to the RAAF. If you are in good financial shape, please consider paying the full price.
  • Please describe the products you produce and market for sale.
  • Please describe the scale of your business. How much area do you farm or what is the volume of your manufacturing.
