Conservation Service (NRCS), an agency under the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), is announcing the potential availability of funding for the development of urban agriculture and innovative production activities.

The Tennessee NRCS Urban Agriculture Project is an effort to challenge local Conservation Districts, non-profit organizations, non-government organizations, institutions of higher learning and other community partners to establish pollinator, urban, and community gardens across Tennessee.

The simple act of planting a garden or creating a pollinator habitat can help unite neighbors in a common effort and inspire locally led solutions to some of the challenges facing local communities within the state.

Addressing hunger and health, while inspiring beautification projects, with an urban garden can positively unite communities.

Proposals will be accepted from eligible entities for projects located in Tennessee.

NRCS anticipates the total amount awarded under this announcement in Federal fiscal year 2023 will be approximately $150,00 0. 0 0. Proposals are requested from eligible entities for projects with a one to two-year duration.

• City or township governments • County governments • Independent school districts • Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS (other than institutions of higher education) • Nonprofits that do not have a 501 (c)(3) status with the IRS (other than institutions of higher education) • Private institutions of higher education • Public and State-controlled institutions of higher education • Small businesses • Special district governments • State governments For new users of Grants.gov, see Section D.
