Grants: Southern Maryland Revolving Loan Fund for Agricultural Producers

SMADC has partnered with MARBIDCO to provide enhanced and new financing opportunities to Southern Maryland farmers by providing funds for MARBIDCO programs.

The Southern Maryland Revolving Loan Fund for Agricultural Producers is a brand new loan program designed exclusively for Southern Maryland applicants. Loans would range from $10,000 - $20,000 to:

  • Purchase livestock and/or enhance existing herds and flocks.
  • Incubate the production of small fruits and increase acreage by existing small fruit growers.
  • Upgrade for the safe growing, harvesting, packing and holding of produce in line with Good Agricultural Practices (GAP).

MARBIDCO administers the loan program on behalf of SMADC. Borrowers that pay on time will receive approximately 20-25% loan forgiveness at the end of the loan term.
