Purpose

This program provides grants for Non-Land Grant Colleges of Agriculture to assist in maintaining and expanding their capacity to conduct education, research, and outreach/extension activities related to food, agriculture, natural resources, and human sciences.

Projects that integrate social and biological sciences to address many of the challenges facing agriculture and rural communities are a priority, such as:

  • Increasing global demand for food production in the face of limited natural resources
  • Improving health and reducing obesity by engaging in healthy lifestyles and consuming healthy diets
  • Alleviating poverty by fostering economic opportunity

Grant types include:

  • Regular Grants: Support a specified level of effort for a predetermined project period without the announced intention of providing additional support at a future date
  • Planning Activity/Conference: Facilitate strategic planning session(s) required of faculty, industry, professional association, community leaders, or other necessary participants for the specific purpose of developing a formal plan leading to a subsequent submission of a collaborative grant
  • Collaborative Grants: Support projects with at least one additional partner or a multi-partner approach
Eligibility

Applications may be submitted by Non-Land Grant Colleges of Agriculture certified by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture at the time of application.
