BFRDP Evaluation – Project Leaders Survey

As a project leader of a Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program (BFRDP) grant, we are contacting you to ask for your help by completing a survey about your BFRDP project started between 2009 and 2012.

To assist in the completion of that survey, we have compiled all BFRDP project summaries available on NIFA’s CRIS database, so project leaders can easily reference what information was previously reported to NIFA.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact: Jan Perez at (831) 450-3235 or
