Grant Training/Technical Assistance

NIFA offers several technical assistance events to help prospective applicants understand NIFA funding opportunities.  Supporting material from these events — which also provide guidance on grant development and grant management — is available here.

The USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture offers many funding opportunities to support research, education and Extension/outreach in most fields of food and agricultural sciences. 

These funding opportunities include grants, cooperative agreements, scholarships and fellowships in plant and animal production and processing; food science and nutrition; climate and environmental impacts of agriculture;  rural and community development; marketing and trade; and many other topics of national importance.

The technical assistance resources collected on this page will help you at each stage of the grant lifecycle, whether you’re applying to a NIFA funding opportunity or submitting technical and financial data or reporting significant accomplishments and impacts in REEport.
