Several programs are available that sponsor grants to cover the costs of renovating barns and other structures on farms in the United States. Grants are used to pay for materials, equipment, land acquisitions and labour costs. These grants do not have to be repaid. Some programs require recipients to cover a percentage of the project costs with funds obtained from other sources.

Emergency Conservation Program

The Emergency Conservation Program is funded by the Department of Agriculture (USDA), which provides grants to farm owners to rehabilitate their land after being hit by hurricanes, floods and other natural disasters. Funds are also used to implement emergency conservation measures to control wind erosion and to save water during severe periods of drought. Agricultural producers are eligible to apply for these grants.

Farm Labor Housing Loans and Grants Program

The Farm Labor Housing Loans and Grants Program provides financial assistance to fund the construction and renovation of housing units that are occupied by seasonal and year-long farm labourers.

However, only U.S-documented farm labourers are eligible to live in the housing units or use the facilities. Eligible applicants include private and public non-profit organisations, state, local and tribal government agencies and non-profit corporations of farm workers.
