North Central IPM Center Working Group Grants

Working Groups are to support collaboration among diverse groups to collaboratively address a regional IPM priority. Multi-state/Tribal Nation Working Groups address information, resource, and research needs in region-wide or broad areas to enhance communication and collaborations for the IPM topic area addressed by the Working Group. A Working Group could also coordinate efforts to develop proposals for additional funding to address critical issues within the North Central region.
