Grants of up to $20,000 and grants of up to $25,000 to USA agricultural producers in multiple western states and Pacific territories to implement sustainable agricultural practices. Funding is intended for projects that incorporate education, outreach, and research, leading to protection of the environment, improved production, and an enhanced quality of life for ranchers and farmers. Eligible states and territories include Alaska, American Samoa, Arizona, California, Colorado, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Northern Mariana Islands, Oregon, Palau, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
The Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Framer Rancher program offers grants for agricultural producers to implement projects that address identified needs in sustainable agriculture. With the support and guidance of the technical advisor, producers will conduct innovative on-site/on-farm experiments to improve production, marketing, and the environment. Outreach may include: On-farm/ranch demonstrations; farmer-to-farmer educational activities and other approaches to assist in the education and producer adoption of sustainable agricultural practices.
It is expected that outcomes of funded projects will result in quantifiable benefits for producers, increase the preservation of the natural and social resources upon which agriculture relies, and be shared with other producers.
Program goals are to sustain and improve the environmental quality and natural resource base on which agriculture depends; improve the profitability of farmers/ranchers; and enhance the quality of life for farmers/ranchers, their families, communities, and society as a whole.
The Administrative Council requires that agricultural producers (farmers/ranchers) be involved from start to finish in the planning, design, implementation and educational outreach of any SARE-funded Research and Education project.
