Youth Farm Safety Education and Certification Listening Session for FY 2013 RFA

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

A webinar-style public listening session was held Dec. 12, 2012, to collect stakeholder input on the Youth Farm Safety Education and Certification (YFSEC) competitive grants program. Listening sessions help NIFA’s leaders address stakeholder needs and assure that NIFA addresses the highest priorities authorized under YFSEC. Written stakeholder comments were accepted until close of business on Dec. 26, 2012.

A full transcript of the webinar, all written comments, and stakeholder input summary are available under resources. NIFA considered stakeholder input and written comments in developing the FY 2013 program guidelines. We expect to release the FY 2013 RFA in March 2013.  Continue to check the website for subsequent year release dates.
