Dear Neighbor,


I wanted to make you aware of an available funding opportunity from the Connecticut Milk Promotion Board (CTMPB). Administered by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture (DoAG), the CTMPB will make up to $660,000 available for programming in fiscal years 2024 and 2025.


The funding is intended to support the CTMPB's mission to develop, coordinate, and implement promotional, research, and other programs designed to promote Connecticut dairy farms and the consumption of milk and dairy products.

Of the available funding for two years of programming, the CTMPB will award contracts up to $260,000 each for:

  • Partnerships with various types of retail, educational, and professional organizations that will lead to the increase in dairy consumption.
  • Multi-media campaigns promoting the value of Connecticut’s dairy farms and the accessibility of milk.

And, no more than $140,000 for farmer engagement programs to educate and engage dairy farmers on the utilization of their checkoff dollars.


Eligible applicants can apply for any combination of the above program areas – you will not be limited to applying for only one. Find the eligibility requirements and more information by clicking here.
