USDA-NIFA-BPP-009262, Bioproduct Pilot Program

Deadline:
  • Up to $10 million available. Awards range from $200,000 to $500,000.

U.S. Department of Agriculture is accepting applications for a new pilot program created under President Biden’s historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to support the development of biobased products that have lower carbon footprints and increase the use of renewable agricultural materials, creating new revenue streams for farmers. This $10 million investment is part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s ongoing work to rebuild our infrastructure and create good-paying jobs and economic opportunity in our rural communities. 

FFAR & Walton Family Foundation, Achieving Conservation through Targeting Information, Outreach and Networking (ACTION) program

Deadline:
  • $1 million available. Awards range from $200,000 to $500,000.

Edge-of-field is a conservation practice that allows for nutrient and sediment monitoring in water runoff at the field level. Despite the potential benefits of edge-of-field and other conservation practices to soil and watershed health, implementation occurs on less than 10% of all US croplands. The reasons for the low adoption rates remain unclear. Coordinated efforts that engage farmers from the beginning could help researchers understand farmers’ specific needs and develop interventions that specifically target those needs.
