2021 NIFA Grants for FCS Extension

The United States Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA/NIFA) is offering two grant opportunities that apply to FCS Extension. Don't pass up these opportunities to get funds!

The first opportunity is the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) - Education and Workforce Development (EWD) grant. The Agriculture and Food Research Initiative - Education and Workforce Development (EWD) focuses on developing the next generation of research, education, and extension professionals in the food and agricultural sciences. In FY 2021, EWD invites applications in seven areas: agricultural workforce training; professional development for agricultural literacy; training of undergraduate students in research and extension; fellowships for predoctoral candidates; fellowships for postdoctoral scholars, a new program for food and agricultural non-formal education, and a FY 2021-only program for evaluation of NIFA’s agricultural literacy and workforce development portfolio. See EWD Request for Applications for specific details. (Click here for full details and the application.) This is a grant that many in FCS pass over, mistakenly thinking it does not apply.

The second opportunity is the Children, Youth, and Families at Risk (CYFAR) Sustainable Community Projects grant. The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), USDA announces the Children, Youth, and Families at Risk (CYFAR) funding program to improve the quality and quantity of comprehensive community-based programs for at-risk children, youth, and families supported by the Cooperative Extension System. The CYFAR program mission is to marshal resources of the Land-Grant and Cooperative Extension Systems to develop and deliver educational programs that equip limited resource families and youth who are at-risk for not meeting basic human needs with the skills they need to lead positive, productive, contributing lives.
