The National Pork Board introduces a new Swine Nutritional Efficiency research effort to assist producers to reduce or optimize feed costs. This effort will target areas related to nutritional efficiency and will be directed through a stakeholder consortium coordinated by the National Pork Board Animal Science Committee and Feed/Nutrition Advisory Group. The primary objectives of the program are: To economically maximize production efficiencies through improved feed conversion and reduced/optimized feed costs; To help producers lower feed costs through improved feeding technologies and information about the use of lower cost alternative diet components; and To develop comprehensive research programs to address genomic and cellular level nutrient utilization processes and capabilities in the pig.
EPA is announcing the availability of Pollution Prevention (P2) Information Network grants. Currently, EPA has established a network of regional P2 information centers to collaboratively develop and disseminate P2 information and provide training in P2 approaches. EPA encourages proposals that seek new approaches to providing P2 information and services that will be more efficient. EPA expects grantees to use performance measurement and program evaluation to identify whether projects are achieving their goals and improve performance. EPA-OPPT-07-01 (GG 5/8/07)
VHS is a highly contagious disease of both fresh and saltwater fish caused by an RNA virus. The North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC) seeks preproposals for one- or two-year projects from qualified individuals to carry out work pertaining to this disease. A Project Review Committee (PRC) will select who will move forward with a full proposal based on the individual's or group's demonstrated record of expertise, access to facilities required for the project, and what is being proposed to address this disease.
The Food Security Learning Center should be designed to create and maintain a national, web-based clearinghouse of information on community food security concerns and common community problems related to the underlying causes of hunger and poverty, including the loss of farms and ranches, rural poverty, welfare dependency, hunger, food access issues, the need for job training, and the need for self sufficiency by individuals and communities. The FSLC will: operate a national information clearinghouse on innovative means, including Community Food Projects, for addressing food security and common community problems in the areas outlined above; provide information and guidance to other targeted entities on innovative programs that offer constructive, community-based or grassroots solutions to hunger, community food insecurity, and poverty; and contribute in-kind resources toward implementation of the grant. Only non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are eligible to submit an application. USDA-CSREES-CFP-000689 (GG 5/3/07)
The Critical Agricultural Materials Act supports the domestic production and manufacture of crop-based materials that are of strategic and industrial importance to benefit the economy, defense and general well-being of the Nation. Such products replace petroleum-based products, and offer opportunities to create new businesses and new markets for agricultural materials. In FY 2007, the Critical Agricultural Materials Act will support development of novel, environmentally friendly technologies for use in paints and coatings, and adhesives for composites. USDA-CSREES-OP-000771 (GG 5/11/07)
The Comprehensive Program supports innovative grants and cooperative agreements to improve postsecondary education. It supports reforms, innovations, and significant improvements of postsecondary education that respond to problems of national significance and serve as national models. Invitational Priorities are: Projects encouraging higher levels of access, persistence, and completion of graduation requirements for higher education; Projects aligning curriculum on a state or multi-state level between high schools and colleges, and between two-year and four-year postsecondary programs, to ensure continuing academic progress and transferability of credits; Projects improving the mathematics and science proficiency of postsecondary students including preservice math and science teachers; Projects to enable postsecondary students, including preservice teachers, to achieve proficiency or advanced proficiency or postsecondary institutions to develop programs in one or more to the less commonly taught languages: Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Russian and languages in the Indic, Iranian, and Turkic language families; Projects designed to disseminate successful strategies to achieve the goals of any of the above invitational priorities serving postsecondary education.

The Kansas City Area Life Sciences Institute (KCALSI) is pleased to issue a Request for Proposals for Research Development Grants in Comparative Medicine to be submitted to the KCALSI for funding consideration. For the purposes or this RFP, Comparative Medicine refers to research using the most appropriate animal models of diseases, toxic responses to drugs, and engineered mutations with the dual aims of increasing understanding of both human and animal physiology and of developing rational treatments for both human and animal ailments. Research Development grant proposals should identify a key discovery of innovation within comparative medicine and address a possible pathway toward commercialization.
The Sunflower Foundation is pleased to announce a new Request for Proposals, RFP #08-101. This RFP addresses three grant categories within the foundation's interest areas: Bridge Grants, Capacity Building Grants and Walking Trails Grants.
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is issuing this Notice of Intent to publish a Request for Applications (RFA) for one or more cooperative agreements for a development activity centered upon the "Afghanistan Water, Agriculture and Technology Transfer Program" (AWATT) in Afghanistan. USAID intends to request prime recipient applications only from Land Grant Colleges and Universities (LGUs), applying in partnership with Afghan regional/provincial universities. As a category of learning institutions, they are broadly accepted as respected partners among the Afghan regional and provincial university networks. The program will provide technical assistance to increase accessibility and adoption of new and improved technology in agriculture production and post harvest activities in Afghanistan. 306-07-20 (GG 5/14/07)
The College of Arts and Sciences will provide funding to host prominent speakers, presenters, or performers. Funding will supplement what each unit or units commit towards the speaker's visit. The speaker's activities will be fully determined by the host unit(s). Speakers must fall under one of these categories: a) address issues of diversity or multiculturalism in general or in the context of a given discipline or group of disciplines; b) belong to a group that is underrepresented in that discipline, regardless of the topic of his or her talk.
