The Great Plains Center offers grant funding to both scholarly researchers and community organizations engaged in agricultural safety and health activities. The objective of this small grant program is to serve as an incubator for new agricultural health and safety research, prevention, intervention, community outreach, and translation projects that have high likelihood of leading to more comprehensive projects or activities. It is anticipated that the GPCAH will fund three or four projects for 2017-18. Project timelines may extend from 12 to 18 months depending on the scope of the project.
Pilot projects addressing unique farming populations (e.g., youth, migrant workers, women farmers etc.), aging, agrochemical use (pesticides and fertilizers), mental health, and other new emerging issues are highly emphasized.
Funding up to $30,000 per project is available. Application deadline is August 14, 2017.MORE
