2013 NCR-SARE Farmer Rancher Grant Proposals are due Nov. 29th 2013
« Reply #1 on: November 12, 2012, 08:48:16 AM »
This is a reminder that the 2013 NCR-SARE Farmer Rancher Grant Proposals are
due Thursday, November 29th at 4:30 p.m. at the NCR-SARE office in Saint
Paul, MN.

Farmers and ranchers in the North Central Region are invited to submit grant
proposals to explore sustainable agriculture solutions to problems on the
farm or ranch.  Proposals should show how farmers and ranchers plan to use
their own innovative ideas to explore sustainable agriculture options and
how they will share project results. Sustainable agriculture is good for the
environment, profitable, and socially responsible.

Projects should emphasize research or education/demonstration. There are
three types of competitive grants: individual grants ($7,500 maximum),
partner grants for two farmers/ranchers from separate operations who are
working together ($15,000 maximum), and group grants for three or more
farmers/ranchers from separate operations who are working together ($22,500
maximum). NCR-SARE expects to fund about 45 projects in the twelve-state
North Central Region with this call. A total of approximately $400,000 is
available for this program. Grant recipients have 25 months to complete
their projects.

Interested applicants can find the call for proposals online as well as
useful information for completing a proposal online. You can find more
information about sustainable agriculture on this website, or take a free
National Continuing Education Program online course about the basic
concepts. Proposals are due on Thursday, November 29th at 4:30 p.m. at the
NCR-SARE office in Saint Paul, MN.

A hard copy or an emailed copy of the call for proposals is also available
by contacting Joan Benjamin. We make revisions to our calls for proposals
each year, which means it is crucial to use the most recent call for
proposals.

Each state in SARE's North Central Region has one or more State Sustainable
Agriculture Coordinators who can provide information and assistance to
potential grant applicants. Interested applicants can find their State
Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator online.

Potential applicants with questions can contact Joan Benjamin, Associate
Regional Coordinator and Farmer Rancher Grant Program Coordinator.
