USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture is accepting letters of inquiry for the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative – Sustainable Agricultural Systems (SAS) Request for Applications. For FY 2021, applications to the SAS RFA must focus on systems approaches that promote transformational changes in the U.S. food and agricultural system within the context of the long-term goal of increasing American agricultural production by 40% with a reduction in environmental footprint by 50% by 2050. NIFA seeks creative and visionary applications that take a systems approach for projects. NIFA anticipates awards of up to $10 million each.
Letters of intent are due January 7, 2021.
