Northeastern IPM Center Grant Programs

Active Programs

The Center administers grant programs that foster the development and adoption of integrated pest management.

IPM Partnership Grants Program

The IPM Partnership Grants 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 Applied Research, (2) IPM Working Groups, and (3) IPM Communications.

PMSP and Production/Management Profiles Grant Program

Proposals to this grant program must develop a Pest Management Strategic Plan (PMSP) or Production/Management Profile (PMP) for crops, livestock, forestry, or other systems that are significant to the Northeast. Proposals to develop PMSPs or PMPs for new topics, or to update outdated PMSPs or PMPs (more than five years old) are encouraged.
