PUSH USDA is UNH’s program to help researchers, educators, and extension staff position themselves to be competitive for U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) grant programs, especially those offered by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). The USDA has a clear mission that its programs support, so developing an understanding of the agency is a key to successfully securing funding.

This year's program consists of an information session followed by one-on-one assistance with strategy and proposal development. 

The information session on January 21st from 1:00-3:00 PM will cover:
·         Meet the USDA: Mission, priorities, R&D funding scenario, organizational structure; competitive grant programs for research, education and extension
·         Developing relationships with Program Area Contacts
·         Application development tools and strategies

PUSH USDA  Registrants will receive Zoom meeting link via email.
