From time to time, other opportunities become available to fund educational programming for risk management education. We will post links to these programs as we are notified.
2018 RMA funding press release – Crop Insurance in Targeted States and Risk Management Education Partnerships Program. This program is currently closed.
USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) has announced $8.89 million in funding for risk management education through their targeted states program and their risk management education partnerships program. RMA’s funding opportunities for risk management education are related, but distinct from the ERME program, so consider this additional opportunity if you are interested in delivering risk management education for producers.
Beyond the annual funding opportunity we provide through the Extension Risk Management Education (ERME) program and the North Central ERME Center, we want to keep you informed of funding opportunities to help serve America’s farmers and ranchers in addressing risk management on their operations.
USDA NIFA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BFRDP) – This program is open to any Land-Grant Institution, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Private Institutions of Higher Ed and Others. Read the current Request for Applications for more information. This program is closed for 2018.
