10/26/21 5:00 PM ET
Grants to USA agricultural service providers affiliated with IHEs, nonprofit organizations, for-profits, and government agencies in multiple states to support training related to sustainable agriculture practices. Applicants must submit a preliminary application prior to submitting a full proposal. 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 Northeast SARE Professional Development Grant Program funds train-the-trainer projects that develop the knowledge, awareness, skills and attitudes among the full range of service providers who work with farmers, including agricultural professionals who teach, advise and assist farmers about sustainable agriculture practices and strategies as well as non-agricultural service providers (e.g., attorneys, lenders, etc.) that work with farmers. These service providers then use the knowledge, awareness, skills and attitudes they gain in their work with farmers.
The Professional Development 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, service providers) that are expected to result from the proposed project.
Funds may be used for the following expenses, as long as they are specific to the project:
