National Extension Integrated Pest Management Special Projects Program
In FY 2008, the National Extension Integrated Pest Management Special Projects Program (EIPM) will provide funding to advance the goals of the National Roadmap for Integrated Pest Management (www.ipmcenters.org/IPMRoadMap.pdf) by addressing priority national needs associated with the design, development, implementation and evaluation of Extension integrated pest management programs. Support will be provided for projects that strengthen the ability of NIFA to actively address national needs in Extension IPM programming and rapidly respond to new issues and opportunities not currently addressed adequately through existing programs and funding mechanisms. Proposals submitted to the EIPM program should be relevant to current needs of Extension IPM programs for production agriculture, residential and public areas, and/or recreational environments on national and regional levels. EIPM encourages the submission of proposals to help pest managers implement IPM methods that will enhance farm conservation efforts and the protection of natural resources.
