North Central Region SARE administers several grant programs, each with specific priorities, audiences, and timelines.
Farmer Rancher Grant
grants for farmers and ranchers to explore sustainable solutions to problems
Youth Educator Grant
grants for youth educators to encourage youth to try sustainable practices
Graduate Student Grant
grants to fund graduate student projects
Professional Development Grant
grants for training agricultural educators
Research and Education Grant
grants for researchers and educators
grants for cooperative projects between agriculture professionals and small groups of farmers and ranchers
The focus for all of NCR-SARE grant programs is on research and/or education/extension. Funding considerations are based on how well the applicant presents the problem being addressed, its relevance to sustainable agriculture in the 12-state North Central region, and how well it aligns with NCR-SARE's goals. NCR-SARE's grant program Review Committees review proposals and make recommendations to the Administrative Council.
