In anticipation of USDA funding, DATCP announces the FY15 round of Specialty Crop Block Grants. The RFP is available now and forms will be posted on the DATCP website in February.
Given the complexity of the proposals including cost share requirements, it is recommended that proposals are developed early to allow sufficient time for the CALS Research Division to review. Many of the proposals are also submitted in partnership with commodity boards or other community partners which requires additional time to review University commitments. If you have any questions about the RFP or submitting proposals to the CALS Research Division, please contact Vince Borleske at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-890-3180.
