The Administrative Council of the Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program announces the call for proposals for Professional Development Program competitive grants for 2023. Professional Development Program (PDP) grants are aimed at helping Cooperative Extension Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service and other agricultural professionals in the Western Region increase their understanding and proficiency in sustainable agriculture. Proposals are evaluated by an outside Review Panel based on criteria outlined in this call, and in comparison, with other PDP grant proposals. The final project funding selection is determined by the Western SARE Administrative Council – a board of agricultural producers, scientists, educators and business leaders from the western region. The Administrative Council typically selects proposals with diverse subject matter and geography, and that demonstrate outcomes relevant to sustainable agriculture.
