Learn more about available or anticipated competitive
grants or cooperative agreements here. For these grants,
NIFA accepts applications from eligible entities
and considers the applications for funding through a competitive
peer review process.
On each individual grant page you will find links
to full requests for applications (RFAs) and application forms.
RFAs explain the evaluation criteria used in the
competitive peer review process, and contain instructions for
preparing and submitting applications. To be considered for funding,
applicants must submit the required forms with their applications.
Information about formula-funded grant programs administered by
NIFA is on our Formula
Grants page. Visitors may also want to explore a broad
discussion of all NIFA funding mechanisms. Grants.gov has information about all federal grants.
