Pilot Program: Tipping Points RFA - Foundation for Food and Agriculture ResearchFoundat... - 0 views

  •  
    This Request for Applications (RFA) encourages applications for developing and testing existing approaches in conjunction with computational and mathematical approaches to deepen our understanding of the complex relationship between the food system, health, and the environment. Projects funded in response to this RFA will examine multiple food-system interventions and environmental factors to address how components of a system function within the context of their environment and the collective behaviors that arise from individual elements or parts of the food system working together to alleviate food insecurity and increase health outcomes. Often, properties associated with certain interventions are actually properties of the relationships and interactions between interventions and their environment. The ultimate goal of this RFA is to encourage food system level transformations that lead to positive health outcomes and increases economic opportunities within a community.

BLM-(MT/DKs), Native Plant Materials Development - 0 views

  •  
    Background: The National Native Seed Strategy for Rehabilitation and Restoration 2015-2020 outlines a coordinated approach to establish a national network of native seed collectors, growers, and nurseries to supply adequate quantities of appropriate seed. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Montana/Dakotas has partnered in the past with non-governmental organizations to help in the development of locally adapted plant materials. Objectives: Develop locally adapted native plant materials including seed and seedling resources for public land restoration or lands adjacent to public lands. Tasks under this project include but are not limited to: 1. Providing seed and seedlings 2. Cleaning of small wild collected lots of seed Public Benefit: The public will benefit because the project provides locally adapted seed and seedlings for habitat restoration, which in turn creates more habitat for hunting, fishing, and recreation opportunities. These plant materials will be available to partners for use in restoration on public, private, and tribal lands.

Integration of strategic wildfire adn fuel treatment analysis - 0 views

  •  
    The purpose of this modification is to implement Phase II of the three-phase agreement. The intention to do a money-added modification was stated in the continuation clause included in the original Task Agreement. The intent of the overall task remains the same: To complete STARFire analyses on all of the of the NPS units with burnable vegetation. The work on Phase I of this agreement has been successful in both streamlining the analysis process and producing outputs at the park group level to initiate integration with the current budgeting framework. The Fire Management Program Center (FMPC) would like to continue the work begun in Phase I by running additional park units (19 fire management park groups, emphasizing the 15 park groups in IMR and 4 park groups in MWR) into the STARFire analysis consistent with the original Statement of Work. The final list of parks will be determined in collaboration with CSU

USDA-FNS-CACFP-FY 17 - 0 views

  •  
    The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) expects to fund a competitive cooperative agreement award of approximately $3 million in Fiscal Year 2017 to a qualified applicant to develop, design, promote, conduct, and evaluate a training initiative that will equip State agencies administering CACFP with the knowledge and skills necessary to then effectively train and provide technical assistance on key topics to CACFP operators (including CACFP institutions such as sponsoring organizations and/or independent centers as well as CACFP facilities including child care centers and day care homes). This award is contingent upon the availability of funds. FNS may fund this project, in whole or in part, without further competition, in this or subsequent fiscal years. The training tools, resources, or programs developed under this grant should support the activities of those who administer CACFP and/or improve service delivery that ultimately benefits program participants. Section 17 of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (42 U.S.C. 1766) provides authority to assure the effective and proper administration of the Child and Adult Care Food Program. Under this program, subject to the availability of funds, the Secretary of Agriculture may award competitive grants and cooperative agreements for the support of training programs.

BLM CA Support of National Seed Strategy to Produce Ecologically Native Plant - 0 views

  •  
    In 2015 the Plant Conservation Alliance released the National Seed Strategy for Rehabilitation and Restoration: 2015-2020, for which the BLM was a participant and signatory. Also in 2015, the White House released the National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators. Implementation of these strategies by the BLM includes increasing the availability of genetically and ecologically appropriate native plant seed, and nursery stock for restoration. Within the Mojave Desert Ecoregion over 1 million acres have burned since 2005, severely impacting habitat for the Federally Threatened Mojave desert tortoise. Invasive species infestation have also greatly expanded, in both upland and riparian areas. Genetically and ecologically appropriate native plant materials are needed to combat invasive species and restore native plant habitats on BLM lands, in support of the National Seed Strategy and National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators, and in support of desert tortoise habitat restoration and recovery.

Food Safety Preventive Controls and Produce Safety Standards: Building Competency in La... - 0 views

  •  
    Given the importance of the region in exporting human food to the United States, FDA proposes working with a multilateral institution in the region, specifically the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA), to develop an expert cadre to foster FSMA standards implementation. IICA has been a strong U.S. government partner in Latin America and the Caribbean and can effectively play a pivotal role in FSMA training in the region. The activities undertaken under this Cooperative Agreement would be targeted to training FDA's regulatory counterparts who commit to doing further training in their respective countries, academia, and industry representatives. By training regulators, IICA would be providing up-to-date information on FDA FSMA requirements, as well as good agricultural practice knowledge. If regulators or appropriate government institutions become trainers of the Alliance curriculum, they could possibly offer the training at lower costs, which can be a prohibitive factor for smaller business entities in understanding and implementing FSMA produce safety standards.
