Hatch Act Formula Grant

Hatch Act funds are provided for agricultural research on an annual basis to the State Agricultural Experiment Stations (SAES’s) which were established under the direction of the college or university or agricultural departments of the college or university in each State in accordance with the act approved July 2, 1862 (7 U.S.C. 301 et seq.). Description of Hatch funds can be found at USDA/CSREES website. SAES’s are required to provide 100% in matching funds. A certain portion of these funds are allocated for the Multistate Research Fund which provides funds for cooperative research employing multidisciplinary approaches conducted by the SAES, working with another SAES, the Agricultural Research Service, or a college or university, to solve problems that concern more than one state. CTAHR receives about $1.3 million each year to support various research, integrated (25%), and multistate projects (28%). A portion of these funds are used to support faculty salary as well as branch station and department upkeep. An annual Research/Extenson Supplemental Funding RFP process is in place to provide funding to active Hatch projects and Extension Plans of Work. Under this RFP, faculty with approved projects may apply for up to $50,000 per year for two years. This is considered seed money to assist CTAHR faculty in competing for extramural funds, and addressing issues of high priority to Hawaii.
