Tennessee Department of Agriculture (TDA) and Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD) have partnered with local agribusinesses to initiate more than $40 million of economic activity through the Agriculture Enterprise Fund (AEF).

AEF is an incentive program that supports job creation and economic growth by facilitating agricultural development in Tennessee. The program has provided nearly $2 million in cost-share assistance to new and expanding Tennessee agriculture, forestry, and food businesses, which has leveraged more than $38 million in investments.
