To mark the 25th anniversary of U.S. household food security measurement, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service (USDA ERS) is supporting a suite of competitive grants on food security measurement methods, data, and future research needs.
The initiative is managed by Tufts University (Dr. Parke Wilde) and the University of Missouri (Dr. Irma Arteaga). A Request for Proposals (RFP) invited proposals for research projects funded up to $50,000 (primarily small projects using secondary data or reviews of the existing research literature) and up to $100,000 (larger projects including primary data collection and new analysis).
Each grantee will produce a written conference paper, present the paper at the conference in April 2022, and produce a manuscript for inclusion in a journal special issue with a draft manuscript due in August and final manuscript due in November 2022.
