Your Iowa Forage & Grassland Council continues to fund the EDUCATION GRANTS PROGRAM in 2016. This program is designed to assist with funding forage education activities in Iowa including forage field days, informational meetings and pasture walks. The funds may be used to reimburse expenses for materials, refreshments, speaker expenses or similar items. Many other sponsors will not fund refreshments. IFGC can help in this needed area.
The EDUCATION GRANT PROGRAM funds events across the state each year. Hundreds of people attend. The applicant or applicant’s organization must be a member of IFGC to be eligible. The applicant must be approved for funding prior to the event. Approved applicants are asked to recognize IFGC as one of the sponsors of their event and distribute IFGC membership applications to their audience.
If you have a forage-based educational event coming up this year and need funding assistance, consider applying for an IFGC grant. Members may apply for up to $100 for reimbursable expenses. Apply well in advance of your event.
