FY 18 Capacity Grant Guidance Letter
The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIF A), like the rest of the Federal Government, is funded under a temporary FY 2018 Continuing Resolution (CR). Funding levels available to support our programs during the CR were reduced as a result of an across-the-board reduction of0.6791 percent from the 2017 discretionary appropriations levels. Due to the 18.90% CR level, funding amounts were further reduced below the first quarter amount at 25%. NIFA applied additional reductions for program administration and other set asides as required by law.
