Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA individuals affiliated with IHEs, nonprofit organizations, state, federal, and local agencies, for-profits, and research farms for research on improving sustainability in agriculture in eligible states. Applicants are required to submit a preproposal prior to applying. Projects must take place within the Northeast region which includes Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, West Virginia, Vermont, and Washington, D.C.

The Research and Education Grant Program funds projects that result in gains in farmer knowledge, awareness, skills and attitudes that are then applied to make measurable on-farm changes leading to greater sustainability.

Preproposals may be submitted with or without an applied research component, but all proposals must include an education program for farmers that seeks to achieve a “performance target”. The Research and Education Grant Program uses an outcome funding approach with a “performance target” to describe the changes in practices, behaviors or conditions among beneficiaries (in this case, farmers) that are expected to result from the proposed project.
