Grants to USA agricultural professionals in multiple states and territories to conduct sustainability projects in collaboration with qualifying businesses. Funding is intended to support projects that incorporate both research and education. Eligible projects should further the three components of sustainable agriculture—environmental, economic, and social—and use innovative educational outreach to disseminate new knowledge to producers and other agricultural stakeholders. Eligible states and territories include Alaska, American Samoa, Arizona, California, Colorado, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Federated States of Micronesia, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Northern Mariana Islands, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
This grant program involves agricultural professional (main applicant) and producers implementing projects to address identified needs in sustainable agriculture. 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.
With a Professional + Producer Research and Education Grant, an Agricultural Professional and five (5) Producers work together to develop a proposal to conduct both research and outreach on a sustainable agriculture topic. Outreach activities may include on-farm/ranch demonstrations, farmer-to-farmer educational activities, and other approaches to assist producer adoption of sustainable agricultural practices. The goal of this program is to achieve results that can be communicated to producers and professionals; sustain and improve the environmental quality and natural resource base on which agriculture depends; improve the profitability of farmers/ranchers and associated agricultural businesses; and enhance the quality of life for farmers/ranchers in local communities.
