These one- to three-year grants are conducted by agricultural producers with support and guidance from a technical advisor. Individual farmers or ranchers may apply for up to $20,000, and a group of three or more producers may apply for up to $25,000. Producers typically use their grants to conduct on-site experiments that can improve their operations and the environment and can be shared with other producers. Grant recipients may also focus on marketing and organic production. The 2017 Call for Proposals will open in April 2016, with proposals due in December 2016. A technical review will be held in January 2017, and proposals will be selected for funding in March 2017.
2017 Call for Proposals Submission Deadline: December 7, 2016, 1:00 pm MST.
