Summary

The Federal Crop Insurance Corporation (FCIC), operating through the Risk Management Agency (RMA), announces its intent to award approximately $5,000,000 (subject to availability of funds) to fund cooperative agreements under the Risk Management Education in Targeted States Program. Purpose: The purpose of the Targeted States program is to deliver crop insurance education and information to U.S. agricultural producers in States where there is traditionally, and continues to be, a low level of Federal crop insurance participation and availability, and producers are underserved by the Federal crop insurance program. These states, defined as Targeted States for the purposes of this RFA, are Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming. Any cooperative agreements that may be funded will not exceed the maximum funding amount established for each of the Targeted States. Awardees must agree to the substantial involvement of RMA in the project. Applications submitted under this RFA must demonstrate how the proposed education and outreach activities will help producers in Targeted States understand: The kinds of risks addressed by crop insurance The features of existing and emerging crop insurance products The use of crop insurance in the management of risk How the use of crop insurance can affect other risk management decisions, such as the use of marketing and financial tools How to make informed decisions on crop insurance prior to the sales closing date deadline and, Record-keeping requirements for crop insurance. Funding availability for this program may be announced at approximately the same time as funding availability for the similar but separate program, the Risk Management Education and Outreach Partnerships Program (CFDA No. 10.460). Prospective applicants must carefully examine and compare the notices of each announcement. The collections of information in this announcement have been approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under control number 0563-0067. READ MORE
