The grant program is intended to foster cooperation between agriculture professionals and small groups of farmers and ranchers to catalyze on-farm research, demonstration, and education activities related to sustainable agriculture. The focus for each NCR-SARE grant program is on research and education. NCR-SARE's Administrative Council members decide which projects will receive funds. A collection of farm and non-farm citizens, the council includes a diverse mix of agricultural stakeholders in the region. Learn more at
