The Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) is accepting Letters of Intent for its research grant program. OFRF is prioritizing applications from early career researchers and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and prioritizing research that maximizes the potential for organic agriculture to be part of the climate solution.
OFRF will fund projects up to $20,000 for one year of research. Submissions must fall under at least one of the six research priority areas: soil health focus; weed, pest, and disease management focus; resilient cultivars focus; livestock and poultry focus; social science focus; and/or resilience focus. Project submissions may be research-based or integrated (research, education, and/or extension). Additionally, the research must take place on property or land that is certified organic.
Letters of Intent are reviewed and approved by the OFRF Board of Directors, the majority of whom are certified organic farmers and ranchers. The application must be completed and submitted no later than 5:00pm PST, Friday, August 20, 2021.
