The Northeast Extension Risk Management Education Center in conjunction with the North Central, Southern, and Western Regional Centers, administers awards which fund 12-month agriculture risk management education projects. The award year runs from July 1 to June 30.

The 2014 full proposal application period is closed and grants have been awarded. The 2015 Request for Applications will be released on September 15, 2014 and the on-line application system, will be open at that time. Specific, detailed information will be posted on September 15.

How To Apply

The application process requires the completion of a full-proposal which is due October 31, 2014 at 5:00 PM CT. In previous years the Extension Risk Management Education Program application process was done in two stages: the pre-proposal and a full-proposal. The pre-proposal stage has now been eliminated. All information related to the full-proposal (including budget information and letters of support) must be included in the full-proposal.
