NIFA Invests $7M in Capacity Building Grants for Non Land-grant Colleges of Agriculture

The purpose of this program is to assist NLGCA Institutions in maintaining and expanding their capacity to conduct education, research, and outreach/extension activities relating to food, agriculture, natural resources, and human sciences (FANH sciences). The goals of the NLGCA program are to strengthen the capacity of NLGCA institutions to develop infrastructure to carry out agricultural research, teaching and outreach activities; enhance the ability of faculty members to engage in agricultural professional development opportunities; and increase the number, quality and diversity of qualified graduates entering the food and agricultural workforce. The NLGCA program supports the economic vitality of rural communities by funding new degree programs in FANH sciences that emphasize new and emerging employment opportunities.
