(WHAS11)- Specialty crops in Kentucky are getting a boost from the federal government.

They are getting a $263,000 block grant.

The US Department of Agriculture grant to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture is one of 55 across the country.

They are aimed at helping strengthen the market for specialty crops like fruits, vegetables, and tree nuts.

The USDA says more specialty crop producers are selling into local and regional markets.
