Overview:

This grant program funds projects that train agricultural service providers such as Cooperative Extension, state department of agriculture personnel, crop consultants, veterinarians, farm advisors with private businesses, and nonprofit organizations about sustainable practices and approaches so that they, in turn, can educate farmers. These train-the-trainer projects must be directed toward increasing the knowledge, skills, understanding, and abilities of educators to teach farmers about sustainable practices and approaches. Four years is the maximum allowable project length

Projects must be directed toward increasing the skill and understanding of these service providers and consistent with SARE's larger goal of broad farmer adoption of sustainable practices.

Professional Development awards typically range from $50,000 to $150,000, depending on duration and content; the average award is $75,000.
