7 CFR 3419 Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
On November 13, 2017, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) published in the Federal Register a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for 7 CFR 3419 - Matching Funds Requirements for Agricultural Research and Extension Capacity Funds at 1890 Land-Grant Institutions and 1862 Land-Grant Institutions in Insular Areas. The Notice withdraws NPRM RIN 0524-AA25 (68 FR 23013) published on April 29, 2003. In addition, NIFA proposes to revise 7 CFR 3419 for the purpose of implementing the statutory amendments applicable to the matching requirements for federal agricultural research and extension capacity funds for 1890 land-grant institutions, including Central State University, Tuskegee University, and West Virginia State University, and 1862 land-grant institutions in insular areas, and to remove the term "qualifying educational activities."
