Organic Farming Research Foundation Grants Crieria

Funds for NGOs
Last date 8th Feb 2016

Activities: Agriculture,Others

The following criteria will be used to evaluate research proposals:

  • Presents clear objectives demonstrating that the project will foster the improvement and/or widespread adoption of organic farming practices, and specifies measurable outcomes that will indicate successful achievement of the objectives.
  • Addresses a high priority organic farming issue, including production, social, or economic problems, and takes a holistic rather than an input-substitution approach to solving production problems.
  •  Demonstrates meaningful farmer involvement in identifying the problem addressed by the project and in carrying out the project; provides compensation for farmer participation as appropriate.
  • Is designed with clear goals and objectives to provide information, tools, and/or methods that will be relevant, useful, and accessible to farmers.
  • Documents uniqueness of project with a thorough literature review.
  • Uses a scientifically sound methodology appropriate to meeting project objectives.
  • Presents a strong education and outreach plan describing how the results will be disseminated to the farming community and potential impacts.
  • Proposal is well-written and clear; follows the requirements in the Request for Proposals including page limits and font size; demonstrates the conceptual adequacy of the project, and presents a realistic timeline for each of the project's activities.
  • Describes the qualifications and skills of the applicants and all cooperators demonstrating that they are qualified to ensure the success of the project.
  • Presents a well-justified and detailed budget appropriate to carrying out the project's objectives, showing any matching funds applied for or already secured.

OFRF requires that successful applicants sign a grant contract before initial payment of the grant award. OFRF will retain 10 percent of the total grant award until completion of the project, timely submission of a final report by the grantee, and a satisfactory evaluation of the project by OFRF. Evaluation involves analyzing whether or not the original project objectives were met, not the success or failure of a project. Annual reports are due on the anniversary of the project start date, and a final report is required within three months of project completion.

Suggested references:

OFRF's previously-funded projects. This will give the applicant a sense of the type of projects the Board has an interest in funding and help avoid duplicating previously funded work.

OFRF's Guide to Conducting On-farm Research, which may be useful in determining project objectives and experimental design.
