Funding Extensions due to COVID-19

Due to the disruptions arising from the national response to COVID-19, NIFA is extending deadlines for the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) applications.  NIFA's goal  is to provide applicant institutions additional time as they work through any operational challenges within their institutions arising from COVID-19. Even with increased flexibilities for applicants, NIFA still recommends applicants submit their applications as soon as possible. For specific deadlines and extensions, please visit the NIFA website.
