My sister sent this my way and I thought Virginia bee folks might be interested. They're small grants, but maybe enough to get some back yard beehives established in the Commonwealth.

I'm also not sure what sort of criteria you'd need to meet, or policies to follow —they may not be in accord with real bee stewardship/what Paul and his guests have shared here and in videos, but it's worth looking into.

I ask many beekeepers in va about the grant and not many are aware. I have applied and believe it is a great opportunity. It is for woodenware only, up to 12 hives and $2400. Grant is well described on its website.
Hopefully I'll get my investment recouped.
