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.
North Central IPM Center Critical Issues Grants
Competitive proposals are solicited for critical issues that address information, resource, and research needs with regional importance to minor crops, major crops, non-crop areas, IPM metrics and/or impact assessments, urban IPM, forestry, cropping systems, resistance management, advanced genetic tools and IPM, School IPM, Tribal IPM and other issues. The program is designed to provide one-time seed funding to help initiate work requiring immediate attention until other longer-term resources can be secured to address the issue.
