ANR support for AFRI grants
The Program Support Unit (PSU) and ANR Contracts and Grants have developed a support process for Principal Investigators (PI) applying for AFRI grants.
The PSU website has a page devoted to ANR AFRI support and also includes video tutorials for locating and navigating an AFRI federal funding opportunity, completing an AFRI Grants.gov grant application and submitting the application.
The process begins with the principal investigator contacting the Strategic Initiative leader in the appropriate subject area to assess the proposal’s merit and fit within ANR guidelines.
The Initiative leaders should contact Joni Rippee when a proposal is approved. PSU staff will be assigned to handle proposals for each specific request for application. Contracts and Grants staff will match up to each PSU staff member to ensure continuity through the entire process.
A communication plan, including a Collaborative Tools group and training for Contracts and Grants and the PSU staff, will be implemented to keep the PI, initiative leaders, and PSU and Contracts and Grants staff updated.
This announcement is also posted and archived on the ANR Update pages.
