CNG's Equity Fund was established to cover certification dues for farmers of color who have applied to Certified Naturally Grown. Facilitating their success as farmers by waiving their certification dues is one small step we can take toward reparations for a legacy of systemic racism throughout North America, especially in US agriculture. Priority consideration is given to Black and Indigenous people.
How to Tap the Equity Fund
To be considered, candidates must complete an online application for CNG certification. That's because the fund covers certification dues, and you won't have any dues to pay unless you apply for certification. 😄

This fund was established with an initial contribution by CNG. We invite all our members and supporters to contribute and help sustain our Equity Fund well into the future.
