11/13/19 12:00 PM MST (Noon) Receipt
Grants of up to $75,000 to USA research institutions, agencies, and IHEs multiple in western states and Pacific territories for professional development opportunities in the field of sustainable agriculture. 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. Projects with a scope beyond a single state or area are encouraged.
Professional Development Program Grants are designed to educate agricultural professionals about sustainable agriculture so that they, in turn, can help educate and train farmers and ranchers. Funded PDP grants must help achieve this long-term outcome:
Cooperative Extension, Natural Resource Conservation Service and other agricultural professionals are conversant in sustainable agriculture principles and systems. They have ready access to resources that can help producers make informed decisions about adopting sustainable approaches with greater certainty and less risk.
Projects must improve the ability of agricultural professionals to conduct educational programs and activities in sustainable agriculture principles and systems and to respond to inquiries on the subject from farmers, ranchers and the public.
Approaches can include, among others:
Multi-faceted proposals are encouraged. Projects using multiple techniques or methods are preferred, as are efforts whose results can be applied to wide and diverse audiences. Subject matter can include any sustainable agriculture endeavor, including animal agriculture, agronomic or horticultural crop production, or the effects of sustainable practices on quality of life for producers or rural communities.

Funding is capped at $75,000 per project. Projects requesting significantly less than the maximum allowable amount generally have a greater likelihood of being funded. This is especially true if the geographic scope of the project includes only a single state.
Multi-year projects are allowed.
