Wednesday, June 27, 2018

The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) publishes funding opportunities and accepts grant application submissions through the federal site. The NIFA Application Guide provides guidance for the preparation and submission of NIFA grant applications via the system. This guide provides general information and references pertaining to the grant application process as well as NIFA-specific instructions and requirements.

When applying for a NIFA award, it is important to reference the version of the guide that is included in the specific funding opportunity application package.

NOTE: The guide provided here may not be the same version of the NIFA Application Guide (i.e., it is meant to serve as an example) in a funding opportunity; therefore, it is very important to follow the NIFA Application Guide provided in the application package on for the specific funding opportunity of interest. The current version being added to newly posted funding opportunities is dated March 2, 2018.
