USDA-National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Rural Health and Safety Education Competitive Grants (RHSE) program supports quality of life in rural communities across the United States by addressing the needs of rural Americans’ individual and family health and safety in the context of food, agriculture, natural resources, and human sciences. RHSE fosters, improves, and coordinates education programs among Federal agencies, other levels of government, and institutions and private organizations in rural areas, to disseminate information about rural health and safety. RHSE proposals are expected to be community-based outreach education programs, such as those conducted through Human Science Extension outreach. Application deadline: April 29. For more information, read the RHSE funding opportunity announcement.
