FSA revises deadlines for RFA to expand farmer outreach
The Farm Service Agency has revised the evaluation periods for the Request for Applications (RFA) for Outreach, Education, Financial Literacy and Technical Assistance.
FSA allocated $2.5 million to fund between 25 and 125 awards when the RFA was announced in September 2015. The purpose of the RFA was to partner with non-government organizations with a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS and public and State controlled institutions of higher education. The initial RFA also provided for four evaluation periods scheduled to occur between November 2015 and May 2016.
Due to a high level of interest during the first evaluation period that ended Nov. 20, 2015, FSA has eliminated the second and third evaluation periods scheduled for January and March 2016 and extended the final deadline date to July 11, 2016. Applications will continue to be accepted through July 11, 2016. Learn more at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/programs-and-services/outreach-and-education/index
