Southern SARE Producer Grant Calls for Proposals Released

GRIFFIN, Georgia -- 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 18, 2013. Announcement of funded
grants will take place in late February 2014.

Producer Grants are used to conduct sustainable agriculture research
projects that solve agricultural production 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.

Producer grants are not designed to pay a farmer to farm; buy livestock,
equipment, or land; make permanent farm improvements or support private
enterprises through capital investments.  Southern SARE Producer Grants are
research grants, 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 Producer Grant Call for Proposals.

The Producer Grant 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 proposal. Failure to follow the submission guidelines may
result in your proposal being rejected.
