The National Institute of Food and Agriculture is offering the 1890 Institution Teaching, Research, and Extension Capacity Building Grants Program. This grant program aims to strengthen teaching, research, and extension programs in the food and agricultural sciences at eligible 1890 Land-Grant Institutions, including Tuskegee University, West Virginia State University, and Central State University. The program supports projects that enhance teaching programs in the food and agricultural sciences, such as curriculum design and materials development, faculty development, and more.

Integrated project grants are also supported. The initiative seeks to integrate education, research, and extension to enhance food and agriculture sciences at the 1890s. Applicants must address at least one of the following NIFA strategic goals: sustainable bioenergy, food security, childhood obesity prevention, or food safety. The grant has an estimated total program funding of $28,000,000, with an award ceiling of $750,000 and an award floor of $100,000. It is expected that 60 awards will be granted.
