Short-term project funding

As risk reduction strategies are developed by steering committees and working groups, there may be a need for short term project funding to support immediate strategy development and implementation needs. These needs or gaps and barriers may include the lack of:

  • Information on the issue, its status and the potential solutions
  • Resources to develop and organize a strategy
  • Communication and information resources
  • Measurement and tracking of success.

In order to address these gaps and barriers, proposals for projects that address them are accepted on a continual basis throughout the year. These projects are limited to a maximum budget of $25,000 (GST included), and must be completed by March 31 of the current fiscal year (April to March). Proposals may be submitted by steering committee and working group members (including growers, grower groups and associations, private consultants, researchers and extension specialists).
