What is this funding opportunity for Agricultural Community-Based Projects?

PERC is seeking applications for agricultural community-based projects that will serve farmworkers, agricultural pesticide handlers, their families, and/or their communities by contributing to the safe use of pesticides and/or working safely in areas where pesticides are used.

What is the timing?

The PERC Advisory Board will select two to four projects to be funded by October 5, 2022. Successful applicants will have up to two years to complete their projects (no later than December 31, 2024.) We anticipate this funding opportunity to repeat at least three times. Identical projects will not be funded more than once but could be considered if it is the same project with a different target audience or subject matter focus.

How will performance be measured?

The description of performance measures will directly relate to the project outcomes and outputs.

About PERC

PERC is funded from 2021-2026 to coordinate the development of pesticide-related educational resources (i.e., manuals, videos, guides) that meet national needs. See our list of projects completed and in-progress. The PERC Advisory Board meets annually to determine priority needs, and monthly to hear from representatives about emerging needs and to gather feedback about PERC products. The materials produced by PERC are intended for use by non-profit educators. Anyone may print and distribute PERC materials at minimal or no cost to the end-recipients. Non-profit educators may request original files in order to modify PERC materials. See our policy here: using PERC's Works.

Evaluation and Selection Criteria

The PERC Advisory Board will evaluate all applications and will score applications using the Application Scoring Rubric (see RFA). Projects will be evaluated and scored against all applications received.

How to Apply

Apply by emailing a PDF document as described in the RFA to PERCsupport@ucdavis.edu. PERC will email applicants within one business day from the day that we received their application. If applicants do not receive a receipt from PERC, then the applicant should conclude PERC did not receive their application. We encourage applicants to apply well before the deadline.
