Conservation Cooperative Agreements: USDA’s new agreements for racial justice and equality
USDA will spend $50 million dollars in new agreements for racial justice and equality.
The new “Conservation Cooperative Agreements” are available for two-year projects focused on climate-smart ag and forestry. The money will go to “historically underserved” farmers who are just starting out, have limited resources, are socially disadvantaged, or veterans.
Entities and individuals are eligible if they provide outreach assistance to these groups.
