USDA Project Guide

USDA-NIFA

NIFA's unique mission is to advance knowledge for agriculture, the environment, human health and well-being, and communities by supporting research, education, and extension programs in the Land-Grant University System and other partner organizations. NIFA doesn't perform actual research, education, and extension but rather helps fund it at the state and local level and provides program leadership in these areas.

Hatch Formula Grant Program

Hatch is a nationally supported program with funds from USDA-NIFA and matched by state general funds and various commodity and grower organizations in each state. These funds are provided to Experiment Stations in each state to support basic infrastructure, scientific expertise, and facilities for conducting research. The Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station (OAES) scientists contribute to research projects at the state and multistate level under the five USDA/NIFA challenge areas and additional Oregon themes.

Current Hatch projects

 

Hatch Projects Development

Faculty Eligibility: Professorial rank AES faculty with >0.2 FTE must assume a programmatic leadership role in a project
Timing: Faculty are expected to join or develop a project within six months of their appointment

Joining or Proposing Hatch projects

 

Hatch Project Reporting

Annual reports should demonstrate the relationship to CAS and NIFA goals and objectives and reports Activities, Outputs, and Outcomes (Measures, Indicators, Targets), and when appropriate, include “Stories” of Impacts. All faculty are expected to annually report publications, patents, varietals released, and other outputs, accomplishments and awards. Final reports should summarize the lifetime of the project.

  • Individual projects: Professorial rank faculty must report research accomplishments annually.
  • Team projects: Professorial rank AES faculty with >0.2 FTE are expected to report at least every other year. Professorial AES faculty with <0.2 FTE must report research accomplishments at least once during the lifetime of the project.

HATCH Plan of Work (POW) and Annual Report (AR)

NIFA requires Experiment Stations to submit a five-year Plan of Work that outlines station programs and expected faculty accomplishments related to these programs. OAES faculty submit a report on their activities, accomplishments and plans for the future.

Multistate Program

The mission of the multistate research program is to enable research on high-priority topics among the State Agricultural Experiment Stations (SAES) in partnership with the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, other research institutions and agencies.

 

Animal Health and Disease (AHD) Program

AHD is a national program which provides formula funds for pre-harvest animal health research in each state. This is supported by NIFA and various commodity growers and associations across the U.S.
