The New York Farm Viability Institute (NYFVI) is seeking proposals for its competitive grant

solutions for positive farm-level impact. Proposals are welcome from any individual, business or
organization seeking to build and share knowledge to improve the economic viability of New
York’s farmers. NYFVI funds projects that reflect the diversity of NY agriculture’s production
sectors, farm sizes, production practices, and geographic regions. The organization seeks to fund
projects that demonstrate: Broad-based support from farmers; Farm-level impacts within the life
of the grant; State-, region-, or industry-wide emphasis and application; Cost-effectiveness and
value. Eligible grant applicants include farmer groups, researchers, educators, organizations,
agencies and businesses. Applicants may represent nonprofit or for-profit sectors. NYFVI

viability and execution.
