North Central Region SARE administers several grant programs, each with specific priorities, audiences and timelines.
- The focus for all of NCR-SARE's grant programs is research and education.
- Funding considerations are based on how well the applicant presents the problem being addressed, it's relevance to sustainable agriculture in the 12-state North Central region, and how well it aligns with NCR-SARE's goals.
