Description

The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) has posted a grant opportunity titled "Equipment Grants Program". This grant program aims to increase access to shared-use special purpose equipment/instruments for fundamental and applied research in the food and agricultural sciences programs at institutions of higher education, including State Cooperative Extension Systems. The program seeks to strengthen the quality and expand the scope of research at eligible institutions by providing them with opportunities to acquire one major piece of equipment/instrument that supports their research, training, and extension goals. The grant does not support the acquisition of suites of equipment or common, general purpose ancillary equipment. It is intended to help fund items of equipment that will upgrade infrastructure. The grant has an award ceiling of $500,000 and an award floor of $25,000. The estimated total program funding is $4,800,000, and it is expected to make 15 awards. The close date for applications is May 3, 2024. For more information and to apply, visit the Equipment Grants Program webpage. If you have any questions, you can contact NIFA Support during business hours, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET, except federal holidays, at grantapplicationquestions@usda.gov.
