Are you tired of asking for small amounts of money from local and regional sponsors for your risk management education programs? United States Department Risk Management Agency (RMA) Small Sessions grants are available at the $10.000 level. In this session you will learn specific steps of how to write a Small Sessions proposal for Annie’s Project. Tim Eggers and Bob Wells, Iowa State University Extension Field Agricultural Economists, and Mary Sobba, University of Missouri Extension Agriculture Business Specialist will explain how they have addressed the RMA Small Sessions Request for Applications as an opportunity to fund Annie’s Project.
The North Central Risk Management Education Center started supporting Annie’s Project with a challenge grant in 2003. Eggers, Sobba, and Wells have worked together on the Annie’s Project since the spring of 2004. They have each secured and managed RMA small sessions grants to deliver Annie’s Project for their clientele. Their goal in sharing the information is to minimize the barrier a lack of funding presents for Annie’s Project facilitators.
This session will cover RFA evaluation, proposal writing, documentation of procedures, and progress reporting. It will be made just after the mid year progress report has been submitted by two of the presenters.
