The Northeastern IPM Center Announces Request for Applications for Pest Management Strategy Plans and Production/Management Profiles
Center to award up to $50K on a rolling deadline
November 14, 2019, Ithaca, NY—The Northeastern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Center has announced the availability of funding through its PMSP and Production/Management Profiles Grant Program, supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
Up to $50,000 in total will be available for 2020, with a maximum of $15,000 per award, to fund updated and new pest management strategy plans (PMSPs) and production/management profiles (PMPs). The deadline for application is rolling and will be open until available funds are expended.
This is a new call for applications to encourage plans and profiles that are updated with current research and knowledge and emerging issues. Proposals must develop a PMSP or PMP that is significant to the Northeast and pertains to one of the following pest-management applications:
- Livestock enterprise
- Aquatic systems
- Turf/playing fields/golf courses/parks
- Medical practices
Proposals to develop PMSPs or PMPs for crops, livestock, forestry, or other systems that do not have a plan—or to update outdated PMSPs or PMPs (more than five years old)—are encouraged.
Public and private institutions or organizations, businesses, commodity groups, and individuals are eligible to apply. Project directors (PDs) must reside in the Northeast or provide sufficient justification for seeking funds from outside their own region. Co-PDs may be from outside the region.
