Northeastern IPM Center Grant Programs
Our Center administers grant programs that foster the development and adoption of integrated pest management.
The RIPM program funds research and extension projects in the region. The project director must be employed by certain colleges, universities, or agricultural experiment stations in the Northeast.
The IPM Partnership program supports projects that further the mission of the Northeastern IPM Center, address or identify regional IPM priorities, and benefit the northeastern region at large. The current project types are: (1) IPM Working Groups, (2) IPM Issues, (3) Regional IPM Publications, and (4) IPM Planning and Assessment Documents.
This program, run by the Northeast Vegetable IPM Working Group, has helped agricultural professionals in the Northeast learn about and share integrated pest management practices in vegetables and strawberries.
In 2007, the Center ran a one-year minigrant program to address IPM and water quality.
