The Upper Peninsula Multi-species Processing Feasibility Study Project is a cooperative venture between several stakeholders including Marquette County, Upper Peninsula Food Exchange, Farm Bureau, and regional planning organizations.
MDARD awarded Marquette County an $127,300 Strategic Growth Initiative (SGI) grant aimed to address the lack of USDA multi-species processing in the Upper Peninsula. The grant will be managed and administered by the County of Marquette with a substantial portion of it to be used to fund a study to assess the feasibility of an USDA inspected multi-species processing facility(s) in the Upper Peninsula.
As part of this process, Marquette County is issuing this Request For Qualifications & Proposals (RFQP) from qualified firms to conduct a substantial portion of the work scope of MDARD SGI Grant. The deadline for proposals is December 10, 2015.
