. The total amount of funding available for award is expected to be $1 million and the maximum funding level is $250K per project. The competition begins with a call for initial proposals from which candidates will be selected and offered an invitation to submit full applications. Initial proposals are due by April 15, 2009. The link to the full announcement may be found at: PDF of IPM Grant.

Goals of the Pesticide Registration Improvement Renewal Act Partnership Grants are to:

  • encourage partnerships between stakeholders, producers, commodity groups, scientists, extension, and local/state/federal government agencies to demonstrate, promote, and expand reduced risk/IPM practices;
  • utilize demonstration projects, outreach, and/or education to increase the adoption of reduced risk/integrated pest management (IPM) approaches;
  • quantitatively measure and document the effects and impacts of using the reduced risk/IPM programs on the environment, human health and community; and
  • build business cases for the implementation and/or adoption of IPM approaches thereby providing pesticide users with solid business analyses of the costs of adopting IPM activities to help them make informed decisions and forward best practices.
  • test the feasibility of new IPM strategies (i.e. environmentally-based) to control pests of public health importance.
