Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE)
12/03/19 5:00 PM ET
Grants ranging from $2,500 to $15,000 to USA commercial farmers and food producers in northeastern States to develop new sustainable products and methods. Applications are accepted from farmers and operations in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Washington, DC.
The goal of the Farmer Grant program is to develop, refine, and demonstrate new sustainable techniques and explore innovative ideas developed by farmers across the Northeast region.
Farmer Grant projects should seek new knowledge other farmers can use and address questions that are directly linked to improved profits, better stewardship, and stronger rural communities.
Farmer Grant recipients are expected to collect and manage reliable data about their project and convey this information clearly through annual and final reports.
Funds can be used to conduct the research project including paying farmers for their time, for project-related materials, for project costs like consulting fees or soil tests, and any communications or outreach expenses associated with telling others about project results.
