EIP Grant Information

Most IPM projects and people at UMass Extension receive funding through a USDA Extension Implementation Program (EIP) grant. We re-apply for this large grant every 3 years, which gives us an opportunity to share our work, get feedback from stakeholders, and adjust our programming to meet growers’ needs.

On this page, you can check out some of our grant reports, results from grower surveys, and notes from our stakeholder advisory group meetings.
