NACD/NRCS Urban Agriculture grant opportunity for up to 20 districts – Deadline 5/14/2017

Mar 13, 2017 by

The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) has partnered with NRCS once more on an urban agriculture conservation initiative. The NACD will award $50,000 grants for up to 20 districts. The program is designed to enhance urban agriculture conservation technical assistance activities in districts with developed or predominantly developing land use. A special emphasis is being placed on underserved communities and food deserts.

Attached is the Request for Proposals (RFP) and a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. I ask that you share this with all of the districts in your state. In addition, NACD will review this initiative and answer questions during a webinar set for 12:00noon Eastern time on April 6; registration details will be sent soon by separate email. The RFP and FAQ are posted on NACD’s website at www.nacdnet.org/about-nacd/what-we-do/urban-and-community/. The webinar recording will be posted there soon after the event.

NACD is now accepting project proposals as directed in the RFP through May 14, 2017. Please contact Debra Bogar (Deb-Bogar@nacdnet.org) with any questions.
