The table below outlines the Sustainable Poultry Farming Group’s (SPFG) timelines. The SPFG sends out five calls for proposals during a calendar year. Proposals; whether they be requests for funding or requests for letters of support are accepted throughout the year, but they are only reviewed at Board meetings. In effect SPFG has funding windows in February, April, June, September, and December which is when Board meetings are held to review all proposals. For consideration and review at a Board meeting, all proposals should be submitted prior to the first of the month in which a Board meeting is held.
