OFRF is modifying its grant funding process to include a Letter of Intent prior to the submission of a full proposal.
“We are thrilled at the level of interest in our grants and the impact our funding has made over the years.” says Diana Jerkins, OFRF’s Research Director. “Starting the cycle a little earlier with a Letter of Intent will help us prioritize the projects that most closely match our funding priorities.”
Letters of Intent are due no later than August 15, 2018. The instructions and form are now available at ofrf.org. Those invited to submit full proposals will be notified in the fall. Grant funding will be announced in spring 2019.
Since 2006, OFRF has invested over $3M in research projects based on scientific merit, combined with the potential to address key grower challenges. Techniques and findings from OFRF-funded research have been widely implemented by organic farmers and ranchers, with information disseminated online, in publications, and at farming conferences and field days.
