The Call for Proposals for the 2018 On-Farm Research Grants, intended for agricultural professionals throughout the Southern region who regularly work with farmers/ranchers, has been released by the Southern Region Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SSARE) program.
Announcement of funded grants will take place in late February 2018.
Agriculture professionals in Cooperative Extension, Natural Resources Conservation Service, universities, NGOs, and government and non-government organizations who regularly work with farmers/ranchers are eligible to apply for a grant that affords them the opportunity to conduct on-farm research in sustainable agriculture.
Applicants must work with at least one farmer/rancher on the project to conduct on-farm research in sustainable agriculture.
The On-Farm Research Grants are not intended for farmers/ranchers.
If you are a farmer/rancher and are interested in applying for a grant, refer to the Producer Grant Program. The Call for Proposals for Producer Grants is also currently open.
On-Farm Research Grants may be funded up to two years for a project maximum of $15,000.

The Call for Proposals includes application information, use of funds, proposal submission instructions, and contact information. Be sure to carefully follow the information in the Call for Proposals when submitting your grant. Failure to follow the submission guidelines will result in your proposal being rejected.
