County Fair Facility Grant

The mission of the County Fair Facility Upgrade Grant Program is to support rural areas in Compeer Financial’s territory by funding county fair organizations as they repair fairground livestock buildings, 4-H buildings or livestock judging arenas.
County fairs enhance rural communities by bringing people of all ages together to learn and experience agriculture. This grant program is designed to help fund upgrades and repairs of fair grounds and facilities so fairs can continue to offer the best possible experience year after year.
Application Period: March 1 – March 31- The application will be posted on this page beginning March 1.
Applicant Qualifications:

  • County fair organization located in our 144-county territory
  • Funding is available, up to $3,000 per fair, for repairs or maintenance to existing livestock buildings, 4-H buildings or livestock judging arenas.

    • Requests may be partially funded.
