Competitive Grants Programs
In 2015, NYFVI more formally articulated its mission and identified strategic priorities for our funding portfolio. For the 2017-2018 funding cycle, the competitive grant program will be a single Farm Viability Institute (FVI) application. The RFP closed November 10, and awards will be made in April 2017.

We are also collaborating with the NY Corn and Soybean Growers Association on its 2017 Corn Research and Education Grant Program. Learn more here.

Additionally, NYFVI is working on behalf of New York State’s Department of Agriculture and Markets (NYSDAM) to manage the competitive grant component of New York State’s USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant Program. We anticipate releasing the RFP in early January. More information about that program can be found here.
