Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE)
11/13/19 12:00 PM Noon MST
Grants of up to $50,000 to USA agricultural professionals in multiple western states and Pacific territories to conduct sustainable agriculture research and education projects with qualifying agricultural businesses. Eligible states and territories include Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and The Federated States of Micronesia.
With a Professional + Producer Research & Education Grant, an agricultural professional and five (5) producers work together to develop a proposal to conduct both research and education on a sustainable agricultural topic. The agricultural professional is the Principal Investigator. The producers act as field advisors to the agricultural professional.
Outreach activities such as: on-farm/ranch demonstrations, farmer-to-farmer educational outreach and other approaches to assist in producer adoption must be included. The goal is to achieve results that can be communicated to producers and professionals and can enhance income, protect the environment, and improve the quality of life for farm and ranch families, communities, and society as a whole.
Farmer/Rancher Involvement: Congress mandates that the SARE grant program depart from “business as usual.” To that end, the Administrative Council requires that farmers and ranchers (producers) be involved from start to finish in the planning, design, implementation and educational outreach of any SARE-funded Research and Education project. Token representation is unacceptable.
