CYFAR Requests Applications to Support Sustainable Community Projects – due by Feb. 28

The U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) has invited applications to fund new projects for the fiscal year 2022 Children, Youth and Families at Risk Sustainable Community Projects. The mission of the CYFAR grant program is to marshal resources of the land-grant and Cooperative Extension systems so they can collaborate, develop, and deliver educational programs that equip youth who are at risk for not meeting basic human needs with the skills they need to lead positive, productive, contributing lives.

For the initial year, the maximum funding per grantee will be $80,000 for a single institutional applicant and $160,000 for joint institutional applications. To apply, visit Children, Youth, and Families At-Risk Sustainable Community Projects (CYFAR). Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Feb. 28.
