AAC seeking short term GF2 projects
By Top Crop Manager
August 25, 2016 - Time is running out to apply under Growing Forward 2 (GF2) for organizations and collaborations. The Agricultural Adaptation Council (AAC) is seeking short-term, GF2 projects that fit the program criteria, as outlined in the GF2 Program Guide.
There are four remaining intake deadlines and tentative board review dates for the GF2 program:
Intake Deadline* Tentative Board Review*
October 13, 2016 December 6, 2016
December 13, 2016 February 2017
February 16, 2017 April 2017
April 20, 2017 June 2017
*dates are subject to change/cancellation (visit the AAC website for up-to-date intake deadlines and board meeting dates)
Contact a program coordinator to discuss your project ideas today. The time frame for completing GF2 projects will continue to shorten as the final board review date approaches. Projects cannot start incurring expenses until after the board review date, and must be completed by October 31, 2017.
If you have a project idea, AAC encourages you to submit a pre-proposal prior to completing the full application. Pre-proposals must be received at least ten days before an intake deadline if you would like a response for that intake.
Growing Forward 2 is a federal-provincial-territorial initiative. The Agricultural Adaptation Council assists with the delivery of GF2 programming in Ontario.
