Organic Farming Research Foundation Grants

Funds for NGOs
Last date 8 Feb 2016

Activities: Agriculture,Others


The Organic Farming Research Foundation has worked nationally to foster the improvement and widespread adoption of organic farming systems. OFRF cultivates organic research, education, and federal policies that bring more farmers and acreage into organic production.

The Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) grants program is open to applicants residing in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

OFRF particularly encourages farmers, ranchers, graduate students, veterans, and early career researchers, veterans and Extension personnel to consider applying for funding. Farmers and ranchers often find that working with a professional researcher helps to design and carry out a research project, and OFRF encourages applications from such partnerships.

The deadline for proposals is 11:59 PM PST on February 8, 2016. OFRF will make funding decisions in March, 2016 and applicants will be notified of these by April 15, 2016.

Note: Organic Farming Research Foundation has changed to an annual grant cycle. The next RFP will be released in the fall of 2016 for 2017 projects.

Overview of the Research Grants Program

OFRF offers funding for research on organic farming and food systems and the dissemination of these research results to organic farmers and agricultural and research communities. Proposals must be farmer-led OR meaningfully involve farmers or ranchers in project design and implementation and must take place on certified organic land, ideally on working organic farms or ranches. Applicants should articulate how the proposed research project will foster the improvement or adoption of organic farming systems, as well as ways in which organic farmers or ranchers can use the project results in their operations. OFRF encourages grants that address the resiliency of organic systems to challenges like climate change and/or have economic and social considerations to compliment on-farm research. Research projects must include strong education and outreach components and contain measurable outcomes. Projects should include expected impacts due to the results or outcomes of the projects.

Project proposals are reviewed and funds are awarded by the OFRF Board of Directors, most of whom are certified organic producers.

OFRF does not provide funding to start or expand a commercial enterprise. Beginning farmers will find a number of resources here.
