Hosting a Pasture Walk? Need some help to cover costs? IFGC is here to help!
Your Iowa Forage & Grassland Coun- cil Education Committee continues to fund the education grants pro- gram in 2010. This program is de- signed to assist with funding forage education activities in Iowa. A com- mon uses of the education grant program is helping fund refresh- ments at pasture walks and field days. Many other sponsors will not fund these items. IFGC, however, may fill in this needed area. The IFGC education grant program typi- cally funds a dozen or more projects each year in as many counties. Hun- dreds of people attend these IFGC sponsored events each year.
The applicant or applicant’s organi- zation must be a member of IFGC to be eligible. The applicant must be approved for funding prior to the event. They must agree to recognize IFGC as one of the sponsors of their event and distribute IFGC member- ship applications to their audience. They must then submit bills for reim- bursement up to a maximum of $100 per event.
If you have a forage-based educa- tional event coming up this year and need funding assistance, please consider IFGC as a sponsor, and apply for an IFGC Education Grant. For a copy of the application, contact your local ISU Extension or NRCS office. You can write: Mark Fehseke, 418 S Franklin St., Corydon, Iowa 50060 or use our contact form.
