Funding Timeline for BOTH CALLS

CFAH receives the Preliminary Allocation Notification from USDA/NIFA between November and May of the same fiscal year funds are required to be spent.  For example, for the 14-15 Hatch/Multi State/Bovine Abortion and Formula Fund calls, we will receive the preliminary notification sometime between November 2014 through May 2015 from USDA/NIFA.   It is the policy of CFAH to allocate 75% of the preliminary funding amount when the preliminary notice is received. 

The Final Notification is usually received in May of the same fiscal year funds are required to be spent.  For example, for the 14-15 Hatch/Multi State/Bovine Abortion and Formula Fund calls, we will receive the final funding notification in May 2015, and if funding is not reduced from the preliminary amount, the remaining 25% will be allocated to the next highest ranking proposal(s).

If you are able to work around this restriction, we encourage you to apply.
