Back in 2016, Tractor Supply Company launched its new FFA paper emblem program, Grants for Growing. The Lufkin Tractor supply is asking our local FFA chapters to get involved!

Lufkin Tractor Supply store is participating in this, so if your local FFA chapter think it can win this grant go for it. Our Local Tractor Supply store is at 511 North Brentwood Dr. near Sam's Club.



Grants for Growing is a competitive grant process where chapters submit an application outlining a new or existing school agricultural project. The grants are to be used to further or boost current agricultural education programs/projects or to build new ones. The project should be sustaining, meaning not just a one year event. The program/project should live on to benefit future FFA members. These chapter grants will allow for a greater impact in local communities and enhance chapter learning experiences.

             How do I apply?

Between Jan. 13 and Feb. 13 advisors will log in to and complete the Grants for Growing grant application. To see the application requirements click here.

The fundraising period will take place over FFA Week, Feb. 17– 26. During that time chapters are encouraged to volunteer a few hours and engage customers to help drive the sales of the paper emblems. Chapters are not required to participate in a store. All chapters are encouraged to apply even if there is no Tractor Supply store with in close proximity. Promotion of the event with social media, posters, broadcast and print may earn extra points toward the grant.
