Join Idaho Cultivating Success and the LOR Foundation for a webinar about a funding opportunity for farmers and ranchers to implement innovative water approaches.


Field Work: Q & A about Funding for

Implementing Innovative Water Projects

The hope is that this real-world research will reveal solutions that can be used throughout the West to grow food while contending with unprecedented drought. This session covers the key details about the opportunity, answers questions, and helps participants identify potential projects that could be funded.

What can be funded? Projects that improve outcomes in the following areas are eligible: water efficiency, water reliability, water quality, crop yield or crop diversification, and labor efficiency. Projects must be completed in 2023 and must include a commitment and plan for reporting learnings.
