Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $30,000 to Midwestern USA nonprofits, businesses, units of local or state government and eligible federal agencies, units of local and state tribal government, faith-based organizations, and individuals for health and safety programs for farmers and agricultural communities.

Geographic eligibility includes the states of Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio.

The objective of this small grant program is to serve as an incubator for new agricultural health and safety research, prevention, intervention, community outreach, and translation projects that have a high likelihood of leading to more comprehensive projects or activities.

Pilot projects addressing unique farming populations (e.g., youth, migrant workers, women farmers, etc.), aging, agrochemical use (pesticides and fertilizers), mental health, and other new or emerging issues are especially encouraged.

Funding is available for the usual categories of grant costs, including salary and fringe, supplies, equipment, data analysis, office expenses, and travel necessary for project completion (but not to attend trade, technical, or professional association meetings). No additional funding has been allocated for indirect costs.

Academic track projects:
Academic investigators are encouraged to apply in collaboration with experienced health scientists. Academic track projects should have a specific scientific hypothesis and should aim to advance the state of scientific knowledge relevant to the prevention of agricultural illness and injury.

Community-based outreach and translation projects:
Community-based outreach and translation projects should have an emphasis on the practical application of agricultural health and safety knowledge among agricultural producers for the purpose of preventing agricultural illness and injury. The purpose of these grants is to test new and innovative outreach and educational methods.

Applications for Community-based outreach and translation projects likely to be funded are those that will result in (1) improved health and/or safety practices or (2) enhanced service delivery by the applicant organization. We will not review applications requesting funds for general operating expenses.

Number of Grants:

It is anticipated that the GPCAH will fund three or four projects for 2017-18.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The maximum permitted budget for a project is $30,000 total (direct plus indirect).

Term of Contract:

Project timelines may extend from 12 to 18 months, depending on the scope of the project. The work scope of funded projects must be completed and all expenses incurred by September 30, 2018, for 12-month projects and by March 29th, 2019, for 18-month projects.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

All persons with an interest in agricultural health or safety and appropriate knowledge, skills, and resources are invited to collaborate with an eligible institution to prepare an application. Eligible institutions include 1) for-profit, nonprofit, and public or private institutions, 2) units of local or state government and eligible federal agencies, 3) units of local and state tribal government, and 4) faith- or community-based organizations.

Individuals from under-represented racial and ethnic groups, as well as individuals with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply. Proposals are accepted for a pilot project from within the nine-state region (Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota, Wisconsin) and Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio. Projects from outside this region will be considered to the extent that they address agricultural safety and health issues of relevance to agricultural producers and communities within this region.

Academic track projects:
The GPCAH encourages applications from new academic/scientific investigators (including graduate students) and those newly interested in agricultural safety and health research. Such investigators are encouraged to apply in collaboration with experienced health scientists. Academic track projects should have a specific scientific hypothesis and should aim to advance the state of scientific knowledge relevant to the prevention of agricultural illness and injury.

Community-based outreach and translation projects:
In addition to academic investigators, the GPCAH also encourages applications from community-based agricultural safety and health organizations and non-academic health and safety practitioners.
