Competitive Grants Programs
In 2015, NYFVI more formally articulated its mission and identified strategic priorities for our funding portfolio. For the 2019 funding cycle, the general competitive grant program will be a single Farm Viability Institute (FVI) application. That RFP is now closed. It is anticipated to reopen in early September.

This year, NYFVI is also running a competitive process for it's dairy education teams program, "Topic Specific Teams". More information can be found here.

NYFVI also collaborates with the NY Corn and Soybean Growers Association on its 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. More information is available using the left navigation.
