Commodity grants are funded for programs on topics that affect natural resources, farms and other businesses, communities, families and young people.
Upcoming Proposal Deadlines
Michigan Agricultural Experiment Station (MAES)
keeps an updated list of Request for Proposals from Commodity Groups. They are listed by groups and specific deadlines. RFPs in the commodity group listing are permanently posted so researchers can refer to the RFP after the deadline has passed. RFPs in the specific deadline listing are removed after the deadline expires.

Each announcement may differ on necessary forms and proposal instructions. Carefully read the solicitation for requirements on budget forms, line item restrictions, key personnel responsibilities, facilities and administrative costs limitations (F&A), signature obligations, etc.
Many Commodity groups
have been granted a waiver of facilities and administrative costs.
