The Northern New York Agricultural Development Program (NNYADP) is accepting applications for its small grants program for 2021-2022. Funds will support projects that focus on research, education, and technical assistance in support of the agricultural production sectors in the six-county Northern New York Region (Lewis, Jefferson, St.Lawrence, Franklin, Clinton, and Essex Counties). Eligible projects must focus their activities at the Cornell E.V. Baker Research Farm, the W.H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute, other agriculture research farm facilities, and/or other operating farms across the NNY region. Approximately $300,000 in funding for the small grants program will be provided through a contract with the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets. A list of research ideas is available online.
Applications are due by November 2, 2020.
