The USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) requests applications for the Northeast Regional IPM Competitive Grants Program. Approximately $600,000 will be available in 2012 to support projects that develop pest control tactics, integrate tactics into an IPM system, and extend IPM information to others. This program seeks applications for three project types: Research, Extension, and Joint Research-Extension.

If necessary, award recipients may subcontract to organizations not eligible to apply. Project directors must be based in the northeastern region.
