Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC)
Request for Proposals: Mitigation measures to address the removal of Category II and III antibiotics
For More Information
Each year, CFC invites researchers to submit an application for a Request for Proposal (RFP) for research in an area of particular interest to the chicken industry.
Maximum Project Value
This project funding is separate to that provided by the Canadian Poultry Research Council (CPRC). CFC’s contribution to the proposal will be limited to a maximum of $60,000. Industry dollars, whether from CFC or other industry sources, must be matched with non-industry dollars at a ratio of at least 1:1. Higher leverage ratios are preferred.
If College-level review is required, your College will communicate its earlier internal deadlines.
Please submit your completed LOI in Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive an email notification of receipt within two days of submitting your application. If you do not receive confirmation, please contact CPRC.
How to Apply
CFC is requesting that interested applicants follow the submission guidelines as detailed in the Canadian Poultry Research Council’s Call for Letters of Intent.
Note: Researchers may apply for project funds from both CFC and CPRC.
While this is a separate RFP, CFC will be using the same review process as is currently used by CPRC. CPRC will also be acting as the administrator for this project on behalf of CFC, and all contracts and reporting mechanisms will be as per CPRC protocols and policies.
CFC intends to follow the timeline as outlined by CPRC for the review and approval of research projects. However, CFC reserves the right to add, drop, or reschedule milestones as necessary. The successful proposal will be selected on overall value and will be at the discretion of the CFC Board of Directors.
Submissions should be provided directly to the Canadian Poultry Research Council:
