Local Lamb Promotional Funding Program
The American Lamb Board’s (ALB) Local Lamb Promotional Funding Program is designed to support local or regional programs and activities that promote American Lamb to non-industry audiences (consumers, chefs, media, retailers etc.).
This is a competitive funding process – the American Lamb Board will give priority to projects that demonstrate innovative ideas and a commitment to share the cost of executing the promotion.
These funds are intended to offset the total cost of the promotion rather than subsidizing the entire cost.
