One form of assistance provided by the KCDC is an Initial Assistance Grant (IAG). One of the critical elements essential for creating new business ventures is professional services provided by legal, accounting and business consulting experts.  Getting a new business venture started and organized is often difficult because of a lack of funds. The IAG can provide for expenses incurred in obtaining legal, accounting, consulting and other business development expenses in new start-up businesses.  Eligible applicants must be a group or an association of agricultural producers. The IAG is available to applicants who can demonstrate that their business idea has the potential to profitably add value through processing or marketing of existing commodities or alternative crops and livestock.  Please contact the Kansas Cooperative Development Center to receive an IAG application and/or to answer additional questions.
