About the NCR-SARE Farmer Rancher Grant Program
NCR-SARE Farmer Rancher Grant Program proposals are due on December 2, 2021, at 4 pm CST.
NCR-SARE’s Farmer Rancher Grant Program is a competitive grants program for farmers and ranchers who want to explore sustainable solutions to problems through on-farm research, demonstration, and education projects. Proposals should show how farmers and ranchers plan to use their innovative ideas to explore sustainable agriculture options and share project results. Sustainable agriculture is good for the environment, profitable, and socially responsible.
Farmer Rancher grants are for ideas initiated by farmers and ranchers. They are offered as individual grants ($15,000 maximum) or team grants for two or more farmers/ranchers working together ($30,000 maximum). NCR-SARE expects to fund about 40 projects in the twelve-state North Central Region with this call. A total of approximately $720,000 is available for this program.
NCR-SARE is accepting online submissions for the Farmer Rancher Grant Program. You can find more information about the online submission system in the call for proposals; find the call for proposals online. Tutorials for using the online application system are available as well.

You can find more information about sustainable agriculture online as well.
Each state in SARE’s North Central Region has one or more State Sustainable Agriculture Coordinators who can provide information and assistance to potential grant applicants. Interested applicants can find their State Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator online.
