Submissions Open for 2024 SARE Farmer Grant Program

SARE 2024 grant proposals banner

Northeast SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education) offers grants to farmers to explore new concepts in sustainable agriculture conducted through experiments, surveys, prototypes, on-farm demonstrations or other research and education techniques.

Farmer Grant projects address issues that affect farming with long-term sustainability in mind. Competitive proposals explore new ideas and techniques or apply known ideas in new ways or with new communities.

A wide variety of topics can be funded by Northeast SARE, including marketing and business, crop production, raising livestock, aquaculture, social sustainability, climate-smart agriculture practices, urban and Indigenous agriculture and much more. Grant requests can be up to $30,000 and projects must be completed within 3 years. A technical advisor is required and should be enlisted at the early stages of the proposal development.

For guidance on how to design your project, refer to SARE’s bulletin, How to Conduct Research on Your Farm or Ranch. To see examples of funded Farmer Grant projects, visit the national SARE project database at projects.sare.org/search-projects/. Proposals are due by November 14.
