Grant Opportunity: Water for Agriculture

USDA-NIFA-AFRI Grant Opportunity

National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) initiates a new challenge area to address critical water resources issues such as drought, excess soil moisture, flooding, quality and others in an agricultural context. Funding will be used to develop management practices, technologies, and tools for farmers, ranchers, forest owners and managers, public decision makers, public and private managers, and citizens to improve water resource quantity and quality. NIFA's approach will link social, economic, and behavioral sciences with traditional biophysical sciences and engineering to address regional-scale issues with shared hydrological processes and meteorological and basin characteristics.

Letters of Intent must be received by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on April 9, 2015. Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on July 16, 2015.
