USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) is investing more than $2 million to provide education and training to historically underserved farmers, as well as organic, specialty crop, and livestock producers, and education projects that promote eco-friendly practices. The funding from USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) provides the resources for organizations, such as nonprofits and universities, to develop training and resources for producers on risk management options.
“This funding and these partnerships help us reach communities that have historically lacked access to training and resources. Our risk management education partnerships are part of USDA’s broader efforts to ensure equity and access to programs,” said RMA Administrator Marcia Bunger.
RMA advertised available funding in January 2022, and more than 50 organizations applied. Successful applicants provided a comprehensive summary of work statements and budgets and proposals that demonstrated an ability to partner with other entities to deliver training. Organizations receiving funding this year include nonprofits, historically black colleges and universities, and university extensions, among others.
