Our nation’s public land-grant universities provide essential research, education, and extension services that address important local, regional, national, and global problems. While both public and private funds help support research, development, and outreach in this sector, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) is the most significant source of funding.
APLU’s FY2024 Agriculture Appropriations Advocacy Document provides additional context regarding APLU’s key priorities in agriculture research and vital capacity programs that support programmatic, extension, and outreach services, as well as justifications to support our funding request levels.
