USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture has $1.3 million to improve the farm management knowledge and skills of agricultural producers.
State agricultural experiment stations, colleges and universities, university research foundations, other research institutions and organizations, federal agencies, national laboratories, private organizations or corporations, individuals, or any group consisting of two or more of those entities may apply for grants through USDA’s NIFA Farm Business Management and Benchmarking Competitive Grants Program. NIFA reviews all proposals accepted in NIFA’s competitive grant programs through an external peer review process in which a panel of experts from within the respective field in question takes part.
Proposed project budgets may not exceed $500,000. Projects may be up to three years in duration. The deadline for applications is April 20, 2018, at 5 p.m. Eastern time. See the funding opportunity for details.
NIFA’s mission is to invest in and advance agricultural research, education, and extension to solve societal challenges. NIFA’s investments in transformative science directly support the long-term prosperity and global preeminence of U.S. agriculture.
