The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has over 3 million dollars in available grants for small farms. You may receive up to a $5000 grant intended for the purchase of renewable energies and energy efficient products. There are very few questions asked for this grant and seems easily available. You will have to pay 25% of the total
amount, out of pocket, and you can still receive the 30% federal tax credit on top of the grant. All applications for the grant are due by April 20th. I have worked with a few clients that have received this grant, and as best as I can tell, the DNR is wanting to give this money away so that they may get additional money in the following years.
