WI Specialty Crop Block Grant deadline remains March 30, 2020

Over the last few days, CALS Research Division has fielded several questions regarding the upcoming March 30, 2020 deadline for proposals to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection’s Specialty Crop Block Grant (SCBG) funding opportunity (read the RFA) and how COVID-19 is affecting submissions to this important program.

DATCP representatives determined they will keep the March 30 deadline.

Faculty who are interested in submitting proposals to the SCBG program should contact their unit’s assigned research administrator in CALS Research Division to begin this process (if they have not done so already).

The CALS Research Division has fully transitioned all grant and contract operations to telecommuting; UW’s central RSP offices have done the same. Services to successfully submit proposals continue.
