SARE and You Deadlines

Northeast SARE serves Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.  

Grants come in two sizes--large, multiyear projects ranging from $30,000 to $200,000, and smaller, shorter-term projects of $15,000 or less. The two funding tiers have different application requirements. Find out who can apply, read about past grant awards, and learn how each grant program serves a different sector of the farm community. If you have a grant, you will find tools to help you manage your project.

Reports describe project results and lessons learned. Search and read reports.

State Programs deliver SARE-specific programming close to the ground. Find out who is affiliated with SARE, their current training or outreach projects, and how to reach them.

Dig Deeper lets you explore ideas and access tools,  news stories, logos, how-to guides, frequently asked questions, links, and publications.
