Please note: We are mindful that organizations are facing enormous challenges brought on by Covid-19, and we aim to ease some of the burdens on grantees. We invite grantees to speak to their program contact do discuss potential adjustments to their grant agreements, such as grant purpose or time frame.

Collaborative Crop Research Goal: Improve access to local, sustainable, nutritious food using collaborative research and knowledge-sharing with smallholder farmers, research institutions, and development organizations.

The Collaborative Crop Research Program (CCRP) works to ensure a world where all have access to nutritious food that is sustainably produced by local people. We focus our support in 12 countries on two continents where poverty and food insecurity have created “hunger hot spots.”
