RMA Partnership Agreement Grants Available

RMA Partnership Agreement Grants Available

Agreements provide new ways to manage risks.

USDA's Risk Management Agency is making more than $8 million in partnership agreement grants available. The agreements are designed to provide producers with new ways of managing risks, as well as for education opportunities for limited-resource and underserved farmers and ranchers.

Approximately $2.5 million is available for community outreach projects that will provide information and training. There's about $5 million available for crop insurance education in 16 targeted states. And just over a million dollars is available for the commodity partnership small sessions program.

The application deadlines for these different areas do vary, but information is available at
www.rma.usda.gov. Just look for the Risk Management and Cooperative Agreements heading under the "In the News" section.
