Administrative Publication No. (AP-038) 21 pp, July 2009

The Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Program (FANRP) announces the recompetition of the grants that fund partner institutions in the Research Innovation and Development Grants in Economics (RIDGE) Program. ERS invites applications from university-based institutions for competitive grant awards to oversee the application, peer review, subgrant award, and quality-assurance processes of the RIDGE Program. ERS expects to fund two RIDGE Centers for Food and Nutrition Assistance Research beginning in fiscal 2010—one center focusing on food and nutrition assistance research at the national level (the RIDGE Center for National Studies) and the second center targeting specific populations (the RIDGE Center for Targeted Studies). Subject to the availability of funds, initial year grants will be approximately $250,000 each for the RIDGE Center for National Studies and the RIDGE Center for Targeted Studies. This publication describes Center responsibilities and application requirements. The deadline for submission of applications is September 15, 2009.
