From the USDA BFRDP Team

Good day BFRDP Project PDs their teams,

We are excited to meet with everyone and have discussions centered around each of your projects. The BFRDP Clearinghouse team: Curtis, Kevin, Jeff, and Bob, along with the NIFA BFRDP team: Denis, and Crystal have worked closely together to put together what we hope is a great couple of days that will truly be beneficial to all parties. As a friendly reminder, all 2020 and 2021 project PDs are required to attend this meeting and any 2019 project PDs who received no cost extensions are invited as well. It is strongly suggested to also bring project leadership and evaluators. The 2022 recommended projects are not required to be present. However, it is highly encouraged, as you will learn from and receive suggestions from the 2020 and 2021 BFRDP projects.

Have a great day and see you soon,

Denis and Crystal
