Due November 11, 2019
This grant program involves agricultural producers (main applicants) and technical advisor(s) implementing projects to address identified needs in sustainable agriculture. With the support and guidance of the technical advisor, producers must integrate research and education to conduct on-site/on-farm experiments to improve production, marketing, and the environment. It is expected that outcomes of funded projects will result in quantifiable benefits for producers, increase the preservation of the natural and social resources upon which agriculture relies, and be shared with other producers. Farmer/Rancher projects are limited to $20,000 for one producer or to $25,000 for three or more producers, for up to three years.
Farmer/Rancher proposal submission remains open from August 19 until November 11, 2019. Proposals will undergo a technical review in January 2020, and the Western SARE Administrative Council will select proposals for funding in March 2020.
The Farmer-Rancher Call for Proposals is also available in Spanish.
