Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE)
11/16/21 5:00 PM ET
Grants of up to $30,000 to USA commercial farmers and food producers in eligible states to enhance agriculture. Applicants must operate farms in Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Washington, DC. There are no restrictions on the topics that may be addressed as long as the proposed project leads to new information that enhances Northeast agriculture.
Farmer Grants are for commercial producers who have an innovative idea they want to test using a field trial, on-farm demonstration, marketing initiative, or other technique. Farmer Grant projects should seek new knowledge other farmers can use and address questions that are directly linked to improved profits, better stewardship, and stronger rural communities.
Projects should seek results other farmers can use, and all projects must have the potential to add to the knowledge about effective sustainable practices.
Funds can be used to conduct the research project including paying farmers for their time, for project-related materials, for project costs like consulting fees or soil tests, and any communications or outreach expenses associated with telling others about project results.
Northeast SARE encourages projects submitted from or in collaboration with women, the LGBTQ+ community, and Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC). Additionally, projects submitted from or in collaboration with Minority Serving Institutions (including 1890s and other historically Black colleges and universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, and tribal colleges and universities) and other organizations in the Northeast that work with historically underrepresented communities are encouraged.
Funds may be used for the following expenses if they are specific to the project:
