About the SLMACC Extension Programme
The SLMACC Extension Programme focuses on communicating research findings to farmers, growers, and other primary industry professionals. It aims to:
- directly influence engagement
- encourage implementation
- create lasting changes in behaviour.
The programme has up to $600,000 to fund extension projects each year.
Applications are assessed against 6 criteria to decide whether they qualify for funding, and how much they may receive. These criteria are:
- cost and benefit
- ability to deliver outcomes
- alignment to research themes
- impact and innovation
- science excellence.
We encourage collaboration with:
- local government
- commercial entities
- industry groups
- catchment groups
- consider key risks
- describe how the project will be successfully delivered
- describe how you will achieve uptake or adoption of the initiative (the path to market)
- consider Māori aspirations and opportunities (such as agribusinesses, business groups, and catchment groups)
- include a realistic and appropriate budget (with a breakdown including milestones, and the budget for each stage of the work)
- include a well-considered project plan.
To assess your application, we need robust information and as much evidence as possible.
