January 24, and proposals are due by March 22.  More information is

available from the CFSC web site, including a description of services

provided by CFSC to assist grant applicants.


If you are unable to access the PDF version of the report from the web site,

you can contact the CFSC office to request a hard copy, which will be

available in Spring 2002 (after passage of the Farm Bill).
