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.

Eligible Applicants:

Any breed, state or regional sheep industry organization or coop

Individual sheep producers

American Lamb Board (lamb checkoff) contributors
