The Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) Sustainable Agricultural Systems (SAS) is a new program starting in 2018. The purpose of SAS is to promote the sustainable supply of abundant, affordable, safe, nutritious, and accessible food and other agricultural products, while enhancing economic opportunities and improving the long-term health and well-being of all Americans. The program requires a Letter of Intent, due June 27, 2018, after which applications are due October 10, 2018. Approximately $80 million will be available to fund non-renewable grants up to $10,000,000 for fully integrated (including research, education, and extension) Coordinated Agricultural Projects (CAPs) and Strengthening CAPs using transdisciplinary approaches. This webinar is an opportunity to learn more about the SAS program and its application process. The webinar will be held on May 23, 2018 from 2-3 p.m. EDT. If you have questions, contact the AFRI Sustainable Agricultural Systems Team.
