Three revised AFRI application packages in grants.gov

Three revised AFRI application packages in grants.gov

Application packages for the following three NIFA Agriculture and Food Research Initiative funding opportunities have been modified in http://www.grants.gov. All other application packages for other AFRI funding opportunities have not been modified.

Funding opportunity number: USDA-NIFA-AFRI-006351

Opportunity title: Agriculture and Food Research Initiative – Foundational Program

Funding opportunity number: USDA-NIFA-AFRI-006353

Opportunity title: Agriculture and Food Research Initiative – Resilient Agroecosystems in a Changing Climate Challenge Area

Funding opportunity number: USDA-NIFA-AFRI-006304

Opportunity title: Agriculture and Food Research Initiative – Water for Food Production Systems Challenge Area

If you downloaded the application package for any of these 3 funding opportunities from www.grants.gov before May 22, 2017, you must download and use the new application package. Submission of applications to these 3 funding opportunities using an application package downloaded before May 22, 2017, will generate an error message (“OPP_EXIST_ERROR FATAL”) preventing successful submission.

Please inform your sponsored programs office of this important issue. For questions, please email afri@nifa.usda.gov.
