Therefore, applicants/projects that are eligible to submit a supplemental application are those that submitted an eligible application in the FY 2016–17 Organics Grant Program, Cycle 2 (ORG2) solicitation and scored 55 points or higher. This supplemental application, in conjunction with the ORG2 previously submitted application, will constitute the ORG3 Cycle application.  No new applications will be accepted for this cycle.
