Fiscal Year 2006 National Research Initiative (NRI) Competitive Grants Program: The purpose of the NRI Program is to support research, extension, and education grants that address key problems of national, regional, and multistate importance in sustaining all components of agriculture (farming, ranching, forestry including urban and agroforestry, aquaculture, rural communities, human nutrition, processing, etc.). Providing this support requires that NRI advance fundamental sciences in support of agriculture and coordinate opportunities to build on these discoveries. Building on these discoveries will necessitate new efforts in education and extension that deliver science-based knowledge to people, allowing them to make informed practical decisions. In FY 2006, the NRI Program will accept applications for fundamental research, mission-linked research, and integrated research, extension, and education projects. Application due dates vary by program. See the list of due dates at the end of the FY 2006 NRI Request for Applications (RFA).
