NCR-SARE is a USDA-funded grant program whose mission is to strengthen communities, increase farmer/rancher profitability, and improve the environment by supporting research and education.
NCR-SARE's Administrative Council is responsible for operation of the NCR-SARE program by appointing a host institution, defining policy, issuing calls for grant proposals, and making decisions about funding proposals.
The NCR-SARE Administrative Council sets program priorities, approves budget and makes proposal funding decisions for all grant programs. The eighteen members fill designated slots for three-year terms, maximum of two terms. Position openings are advertised via press releases, and current AC members elect new members from nominations. Council members are expected to attend Council meetings (in-person February and July, throughout region), review proposals and other materials distributed between meetings, and participate in NCR-SARE committees and occasional between-meeting conference calls.
Recommendations and self-nominations are welcome. To be considered, email email@example.com, and include short bio or resume.
