USDA-NIFA: Supplemental and Alternative Crops Competitive (SACC) Grants Program

Deadline: 11 April 2017

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) is currently seeking applications for its “Supplemental and Alternative Crops (SACC) Competitive Grants Program” to significantly increase crop production and/or acreage by developing and testing of superior germplasm, improving methods of planting, cultivation, and harvesting, and transferring new knowledge to producers as soon as practicable.

The Supplemental and Alternative Crops Competitive (SACC) Grants Program will support the development of canola as a viable supplemental and alternative crop in the United States.

The Supplemental and Alternative Crops grant program (SACC) is of importance to United States (U.S.) producers whose livelihood is threatened by the decline in production of certain commodities due to changes in consumer demand or other causes that affect their ability to profitably produce those commodities.

Funding Information

The anticipated total program amount available for SACC grants in FY 2017 is approximately $766,000.
