BOISE – The Idaho Cattle Foundation (ICF) is requesting 2017 funding applications for public and/or higher education programs that advance the state’s livestock industry to be received by February 10, 2017.
Through an application process available at www.idahocattlefoundation.org, the ICF will recommend funding to the Idaho State Board of Education for livestock education programs. Funding is available from the proceeds of the Unclaimed Livestock Account for programs that advance Idaho’s livestock-based industries through public or higher education.
In 2016, ICF recommended that $28,950.00 of Unclaimed Livestock Funds transferred into the Idaho State Board of Education’s miscellaneous revenue fund be granted to programs in Idaho. The programs were agricultural education and research projects under the care of University of Idaho and Mackay High School.
ICF is a charitable organization established by the Idaho Cattle Association to provide an Idaho beef industry presence in education and science, priding itself in being the state’s official organization tasked with recommending unclaimed livestock proceeds.
Applications for these educational funds are available at www.idahocattlefoundation.org and will be accepted until 5:00 pm February 10, 2016. For more information, please visit the website at www.idahocattlefoundation.org or call (208) 343-1615.
