The US Department of Agriculture wants to help veteran farmers and ranchers with 35 million dollars in funding. The USDA Office of Partnerships and Public Engagement said the funding helps historically underserved groups more fully access and participate in USDA programs and services. These funds have been awarded to underserved farmers and ranchers since 2010, awarding a total of 158 million. If you want to apply for the grants as a new farmer, a community based organization, or not-for-profit you can attend the first webinar session on March 30th at 11am, visit the USDA 2501 program page for more information.
