Project Grant

Overview

Grant Description
This EDA investment supports the Fresno-Merced Future of Food Innovation (F3) Coalition, led by the Central Valley Community Foundation, with driving agriculture innovation in California's Central Valley by accelerating the integration of technology and skills in the region's agriculture industry—improving productivity and job quality for existing farmworkers while driving a more resilient and sustainable food system.

The projects funded as part of this award include the launch of iCreate, a new ag-tech hub, with the mission to accelerate the development and transfer of technology between researchers at local universities and farmers across the region. At the same time, community colleges throughout the Central Valley will receive access to new technology and training to equip students and workers with the skills needed to access higher quality, higher paying jobs in ag-tech—improving both farm productivity and wages.

Once implemented, the investment will help develop and strengthen regional industry clusters - all while embracing economic equity, creating good-paying jobs, and enhancing U.S. competitiveness globally.
