Project nominations may be made in one of two ways:
Submit Through Your Regional Field Coordinator (Preferred): Submit a list of project requests you’d like to nominate as “A”, “B”, or “C”, as well as a justification for any “A” nominations, to your designated IR-4 regional field coordinator.

Self Nomination: If you choose to nominate a project yourself, you can do so using the Food Use Data Management System. New system users will need to create an account.
