SRDC, S-Region SARE RFP links economic development with natural resource management
Linking farm and nonfarm economic development to natural resources management is the priority of the 2009 Requests for Proposals (RFP) recently released by the Southern Rural Development Center (SRDC) jointly with Southern-Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (S-Region SARE).
In addition, the SRDC/S-Region SARE partnership that established this “Sustainable Community Innovations” competitive grants program remains interested in entrepreneurship efforts and value-added activities that build on agricultural and non-agricultural assets of communities. These include efforts to establish entrepreneurship-friendly communities that help to support and sustain value-added entrepreneurship endeavors.
Proposals are due October 5, 2009. Visit the S-Region SARE Web site to view the RFP. For further information contact Jeff Jordan, S-Region SARE coordinator, or Bo Beaulieu, SRDC director. At NIFA, contact Sally Maggard, national program leader for Economic and Community Systems.
