North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NCR-SARE)
04/02/20 4:00 PM CDT
Grants of up to $90,000 to USA educators representing nonprofit groups, conservation agencies, and extension agencies in eligible states for professional education in agriculture. Eligible programs must be located in one of the following states: Ohio, Nebraska, Missouri, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
Proposals must be targeted to educators within the Cooperative Extension Service (CES), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), other governmental agencies, and/or educators and other relevant personnel in the non-profit and for-profit sectors serving farmers and ranchers. Involvement of educators from more than one state is appropriate but not required.
The overall desired outcome of NCR-SARE PDP is to have educators (extension, NRCS, NGO, agency staff and other agricultural educators) who are knowledgeable in the general concepts of sustainable agriculture, and who work in partnership with farmers, ranchers, and others on developing programs and activities that enhance the sustainability of communities and the food and agricultural system.
The North Central PDP utilizes an outcome-based approach for funding its educational programs. Each project funded by SARE PDP is asked to identify short, intermediate, and long-term expected outcomes directly associated with their professional development project. In the short-term, PDP projects should result in an increase in the awareness, knowledge and motivation of educators in the area of sustainable agriculture. In the intermediate term, these changes in knowledge and skills should result in changes in the behavior of educators, which includes educators developing and implementing formal and informal educational programs to assist farmers, ranchers, and others in shifting to sustainable agriculture systems. In the long-term, these changes should result in programs and activities that enhance the sustainability of agriculture and food systems (including rural community sustainability).
