Established in 2001, the North Central Extension Risk Management Education Center funds results-based, producer-focused, competitive grants with funding from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). Located at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, our mission is to empower the strengths and skills of individuals in the North Central region who are involved in the management of agricultural production, marketing, financial, legal, and human resource risks
Serving the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin; the Center provides funding annually for individual programs which directly benefit the agricultural producer through a competitive application process.
The 2015 RFA will be released on September 15. Read about important changes to the ERME funding program for 2015 in addition to the earlier release date.
Make plans to attend the 2015 Extension Risk Management Education Conference in Minneapolis, MN, April 28-29. More information will be posted soon. Presentations from the 2014 Women in Agriculture Conference at Indianapolis, IN, are now posted!
