Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Funding is being made available for local governments in Virginia to support agriculture- and forestry-based industries.
    
Gov. Bob McDonnell's office says local planning grants are available as part of the Governor's Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development Fund.
    
The $250,000 in matching funds is aimed improving local economic development efforts relating to agribusiness.
    
Additional funding of $750,000 also will help assist local efforts in expanding current or attracting new agriculture and forestry processing facilities using Virginia-grown products.
    
The application deadline for the initial round of the grants is March 1 with award announcements expected to be made in April.
