2020 North Central IPM Center Working Group RFA
The NCIPMC announces the availability of funds and requests proposals for Working Groups that support the NCIPMC and regional IPM priorities. Working Groups are to support collaboration among diverse groups to collaboratively address a regional IPM priority. Multi-state/tribal nation Working Groups address information, resource, and research needs in region-wide or broad areas to enhance communication and collaborations for the IPM topic area addressed by the Working Group. A Working Group could also coordinate efforts to develop proposals for additional funding to address critical issues within the North Central region. To see 2019 projects, click here.
