A. Eligible Applicants
Applications may be submitted by Cooperative Extension at 1890 Land-Grant Institutions, including Tuskegee University and West Virginia State University, at 1862 Land-Grant Colleges and Universities, and the University of the District of Columbia. An applicant’s failure to meet an eligibility criterion by the time of an application deadline will preclude NIFA from reviewing their application or making an award.
Award recipients may subcontract to organizations not eligible to apply provided such organizations are necessary for the conduct of the project. An applicant’s failure to meet an eligibility criterion by the time of an application deadline may result in the application being excluded from consideration or, even though an application may be reviewed, will preclude NIFA from making an award.
B. Cost Sharing or Matching NIFA does not require matching or cost sharing support for this program, and matching resources will not be factored into the review process as evaluation criteria.
