OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry is getting $10 million in CARES Act grants.

The money will let state meat processors build or expand their businesses and create additional meat processing capacity in the state, according to agency officials. It will also reduce the risk of plant shutdowns and help ensure meat will be in grocery stores.

New and existing meat processing businesses can apply for the money to help their business. Awards will be capped at $1 million.

Grant applications are due by Aug. 14. The money can not be used for payroll or to buy property.
