Southern SARE Producer Grants
« Reply #1 on: September 05, 2012, 08:05:24 AM »
Calls for Proposals for the 2013 Producer Grants,
intended for farmers/ranchers and farmer/rancher organizations throughout
the Southern region, are now available from the Southern Sustainable
Agriculture Research & Education (SSARE) program.

Proposal submission deadline is November 15, 2012. Announcement of grants
will take place in late February 2013.

Producer Grants are used to conduct projects that solve challenges farmers
face and to develop information on what works and what doesn’t so that other
farmers and ranchers facing those same challenges can benefit from the
results of the funded project. The grants are not designed to pay a farmer
to farm. They are designed to take some of the financial risk away from
trying a solution.

Projects may be funded for up to two years for a project maximum of $10,000
for an individual producer or $15,000 for a producer organization. Producer
organizations should be comprised primarily of farmers/ranchers and must
have a majority farmer representation on their governing board.

For detailed information on how to apply for a Producer Grant, download the
current Call for Proposals from http://www.southernsare.org. The Call for
Proposals includes application information, program priorities, use of
funds, proposal submission instructions, and contact information. Be sure to
carefully follow the information in the Call for Proposals when submitting
your proposal. Failure to follow the submission guidelines may result in
your proposal being rejected.
