Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Agroforestry Grants

The USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture's (NIFA) Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program funds many grants that support research and outreach in agroforestry. These include grants targeted at farmers/ranchers, professional development, and partnerships. Such efforts can inform decisions regarding agroforestry implementation and research. This table catalogues and indexes many SARE projects related to agroforestry. It also links to the overview of each project provided in the SARE project database. Use this tool to search past projects by agroforestry practice, state, date, and project type. If you know of additional SARE-funded projects that should be added to this catalogue, or would like to provide feedback, please contact Kate MacFarland.

Thank you to David Livingstone and Nicolas Manzi from the University of Nebraska for their help with compiling this information in June 2018.
