Webinar: USDA Urban Agriculture Grants
This webinar will provide an overview of the USDA’s urban agriculture grants. It will cover the Urban Agriculture and Innovation Production (UAIP) Competitive Grants Program’s purpose, project types, eligibility, and basic requirements for the submission of an application.
The newly established UAIP program supports the development of urban agriculture and innovative production activities by funding Planning Projects and Implementation Projects led by nonprofit organizations, local or Tribal governments, and schools that serve any of the grades K-12 in areas of the United States.
There is approximately $1 million available for Planning Projects and $2 million for Implementation Projects. This is the first grant cycle for UAIP. The purpose of Planning Projects is to support the development of projects that will either initiate or build upon or expand the efforts of farmers, gardeners, citizens, government officials, schools, and other stakeholders in urban areas and suburbs. The purpose of Implementation Projects is to accelerate existing and emerging models of urban, indoor, and other agricultural practices that serve multiple farmers or gardeners.
The Notice of Funding Opportunity (NFO) is posted on Grants.gov. Applications must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on July 6, 2020.
