Agricultural Workforce Training Grant Program Webinar

USDA NIFA is inviting the public to join an informational webinar for the Agricultural Workforce Training grant program.

The Agriculture Workforce Development grant program (AWT) (A7601) is being offered through the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) Education and Workforce Development (EWD) Request for Applications. For eligibility and more information, please consult the RFA ahead of time.

The AWT program area seeks to develop a workforce ready for the field as well as industry jobs in the food and agricultural sector. Through the development of new workforce training programs, or the expansion, improvement, or renewal of existing workforce training programs at community, junior, and technical colleges/institutes, this program will expand job-based, experiential learning opportunities, acquisition of industry-accepted credentials and occupational competencies for students to enable a work-ready labor force for the 21st century. Proposals aimed towards developing baccalaureate or graduate degree programs or pathways towards these degrees are not supported under this program area priority.

Time: 1:00-2:00 PM EDT (12:00-1:00 PM CDT)
