Capacity Building Grants for Non-Land-Grant Colleges of Agriculture Program
Outside of the Land-Grant programs, many colleges and universities provide strong agricultural programs. NIFA provides them targeted funding through the Capacity Building Grants for Non-Land-Grant Colleges of Agriculture (NLGCA) Program.
Non-Land-Grant institutions with schools of agriculture can also receive NIFA funding. This grant program allows them to carry out educational, research, and outreach activities that address priority concerns of national, regional, State, and local interest. Like their Land-Grant counterparts this funding can be used to promote food security, food safety and improve production agriculture. Faculty can used the funding to develop curricula and enhance agricultural related programs at their institution.
