FFAR Call for Research Proposals: Advanced Animal Systems, Health-Agriculture Nexus, Next Generation Crops, Soil Health, Sustainable Water Management, Urban Food Systems
FFAR’s Seeding Solutions Grants are an open call for applicants to submit innovative and transformative research proposals that furthers any of our Challenge Areas, and foster unique partnerships. Every year, FFAR funds at least one proposal in each of our Challenge Areas, typically awarding each applicant between $300,000 and $1 million.
Seeding Solutions applicants are required to complete a pre-proposal. As our Seeding Solutions program supports innovation and partnership, grantees are required to provide matching funds from non-federal sources and identify an innovation that addresses an intractable problem in food and agriculture within one of FFAR’s Challenge areas.
Pre-Proposal Submission Deadline: April 19, 2019
