How to apply...
No application is necessary, but payment of funds is contingent on the approval of an annual plan for programs to be conducted. Funds can be expended only on projects approved by CSREES. This program is subject to the provisions of OMB Circular No. A- 110 as implemented by 7 CFR Part 3019.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
The release of funds to eligible institutions is contingent upon the filing of an approved Program of Research and the certification that required nonfederal funds are available to meet matching requirements. Funds can be expended only by the recipient institution and only on research having had prior approval by The Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service (CSREES).
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
