Message from State Director, VT EPSCoR, Judith Van Houten:
 
The USDA has announced RFAs in five "Challenge Areas" of 1. Childhood Obesity Prevention; 2. Climate Change; 3. Global Food Security; 4. Food Safety; 5. Sustainable Bioenergy. Each RFA has multiple grant opportunities of varying size. We provide below details about the Sustianable Bioenergy applications, but there are similar details in the RFAs for each of the other challenge areas. Links to the PDFs of all the RFAs can be found below.
 
Note that these RFAs are for all states and investigators but that within each competition there will be funds for EPSCoR states. Vermont is a USDA EPSCoR state, as are New Hampshire and Maine. This information is relevant because some of the grant mechanisms require regional partners. VT EPSCoR can expedite the process of finding regional partners. Please contact me directly at judith.vanhouten@uvm.edu with questions about regional applications.
 
Best of luck with your applications.
Judith Van Houten
Vermont State EPSCoR Director
