@sqkcrk: Mark, the VA Grant was brand new this year and was available for new hives started in calendar year 2013. So, the application process was not announced yet. Nobody has applied or received a grant. Grant money was limited to $2400 per person and $200 per new hive. So if you start 12 or 120 hives, you still only get $2400 total.
All: Keep in mind funding was deferred until fiscal year 2014. The state could still accept grant applications for hives started after 1/1/2013 at some point. We just won't see a grant payment until after July 1st.
