NIFA has stipulated that All Tribal College Research Grant projects should involve a collaboration between a faculty member of a Tribal College or University serving as the lead Project Director (PD), as well as a faculty member from an 1862 or 1890 Land Grant Institution who may also serve as a co-Project Director.

The National Institutes of Food and Agriculture is set to administer $1,600,000 to support the initiatives of this program.

This program is exclusive for Tribal Colleges and Universities designated as 1994 Land-Grant Institutions under the Educational Land-Grant Status Act of 1994.
