Grants to USA PreK-12 teachers to enhance student understanding of agriculture by incorporating agricultural lessons into the core curriculum. Funding is intended for materials necessary for projects related to agriculture, gardening, and other related topics. Teachers may propose creative classroom projects that use agricultural concepts to teach reading, writing, math, science, social studies and more.

Because of school closures related to COVID-19, grant applicants may apply for projects that use a virtual, online approach to engage student participation. Please describe in your project narrative how you will conduct the project online, and detail in your project budget the expenditures that will be necessary to cover the cost of the virtual experience.
