The Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SSARE) program is soliciting grant proposals for sustainable meat goat production and marketing across the Southern region. The 2020 Large Systems Research Grant Program on Sustainable Meat Goat Production and Marketing in the Southeast United States must include both components of production and marketing research activities in the goat industry. The grant is intended for research teams who have established multi-state, multi-disciplinary regional projects, but need support to accomplish more long-term research goals, specifically related to small ruminants. The grant offers $200,000 per year for three years with the opportunity for additional three-year renewals, for a maximum of nine years.
The proposal deadline is June 5, 2020.
