Bayer has  announced 58 projects that will receive funding to establish forage for pollinators across the nation. Nearly 100 projects were submitted in response to the request for proposals for the first round of funding, which were reviewed and evaluated by the inaugural Feed a Bee steering committee.

Through the Feed a Bed program, Bayer is working to establish native pollinator forage in all 50 states before the end of 2018, distributing a total of $500,000 to organizations across the country via a competitive request for proposal  process. The 58 projects funded in this first round represent organizations that span all sectors, including universities, nonprofits, nature conservancies and more, in more than 30 states and Washington, D.C. Awards range  from $1,000 to $5,000.
 
The 58 forage projects, which include establishment of new pollinator forage and habitat restoration, will take place throughout the remainder of the year, following the official kick off  June 17, at the Washington Youth Garden in Washington, D.C.

The full list of organizations funded can be found online here.
