For more information at MSSTATE, please contact Ms. Libby Durst at [email protected] MSU Extension Associate II, Southern SARE Program Assistant
The Call for Proposals for the 2024 Producer Grant Program, intended for farmers/ranchers and farmer/rancher organizations throughout the Southern region, is now available from the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SSARE) program.
Proposal submission deadline is November 10, 2023, at 12 p.m. (NOON) EST. The announcement of funded proposals will take place in late February 2024.
The maximum funding amount for a Producer Grant is $20,000 for individual farmers/ranchers and $25,000 for farmer/rancher organizations.
Producer Grants are used to conduct sustainable agriculture research projects that solve agricultural production challenges farmers face and to develop information on what works and what doesn’t so that other farmers and ranchers facing those same challenges can benefit from the results of the funded project.
Producer grants are not designed to pay a farmer to farm; buy livestock, equipment, or land; make permanent farm improvements, or support private enterprises through capital investments. Southern SARE Producer Grants are competitive research grants, designed to take some of the financial risk away from trying a solution to an agricultural production issue.
Projects are funded for two years. Producer organizations should be comprised primarily of farmers/ranchers and must have a majority farmer representation on their governing board.
