The Agricultural Workforce Training Priority Area, part of the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative - Education and Workforce Development (AFRI EWD), addresses the need for training or retraining of the agricultural workforce by providing institutional training grants to develop a technology- and data-savvy workforce that is ready for the field and industrial jobs. These include opportunities for the development of new workforce training programs and the expansion, improvement, or renewal of existing workforce training programs and curriculum. Projects must be developed by or for community/junior/technical colleges/institutes and their industry partners. All applications to this program area must demonstrate committed and active partnership with and/or relevance to industry. The application deadline is September 24, 2020 at 5 p.m. (ET). For more information about the program area priority, please see the AFRI EWD Request for Applications.
Interested applicants are invited to register for an informational AFRI EWD webinar on August 19, 2020 at 1 p.m. (CT).
