Established in 2001, the North Central 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.
Read a discussion of risk management issues and needs which have surfaced in the past year from the Center’s audiences, stakeholders, and Advisory Council members. This discussion provides ideas and guidance for individuals or groups working to educate producers and considering an application for Center funding to deliver risk management education.
