NCR-SARE to Offer Youth Educator Sustainable Ag Grants
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 08/09/2019

The 2019 North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program has announced that proposals are being accepted for grants offered by the program. The four program areas include the Research and Education Grant, the Partnership Grant, the Youth Educator Grant, and the Farmer Rancher Grant.

The Research and Education Grant Program is a competitive grant program for researchers and educators involved in projects that explore and promote environmentally sound, profitable, and socially responsible food and/or fiber systems. The initiative is intended to foster cooperation between agriculture professionals and small groups of farmers and ranchers to catalyze on-farm research, demonstration, and education activities related to sustainable agriculture.

Research and Education projects include a strong outreach component and significant farmer/rancher or other end user involvement from inception of the idea through implementation of the project. Research and Education grant awards range from $10,000 to $200,000 and projects may last up to 36 months. NCR-SARE anticipates funding 10-14 Research and Education projects per year.

Many projects are interdisciplinary and/or multi-institutional, involving a broad range of agricultural interests. Project coordinators in the past have explored sustainable agriculture in biocontrol, crop production, education/extension, networking, livestock production, marketing, quality of life, soil quality, value-added marketing, waste management, water quality, and weed control.

The deadline to apply for the Research and Education Grant is November 14. For more information, visit the SARE website at
