The Northeastern IPM Center has released its RFA for the 2015 Partnership Grants Program! Up to $400,000 is available, with a maximum of $50,000 per award. Projects should foster the development and adoption of integrated pest management (IPM) methods under three types of grants: IPM Working Groups, IPM Issues, and Regional IPM Communications. Areas of focus for this year include: Wicked Biological Problems, Synergizing IPM and Organic, Rural and Urban IPM, Climate Change and Pests, and Advanced Production Systems. Please see http://www.northeastipm.org/rfa/partnership for details and a link to the complete RFA.
Applications must be submitted online by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, November 20, 2014. Please note this is an earlier date than originally noted in our Fall IPM Insights.
Public and private institutions, organizations, businesses, commodity groups, and individuals may apply. Projects must involve multiple states and should be of benefit to the region at large or a significant portion of it. Project Directors must reside in the Northeast or provide sufficient justification for seeking funds from outside their own region. Co-PDs may be from outside the region.
We look forward to your submission!
