Financial Resources

For individual farmers and ranchers and farming and ranching businesses

The information provided is to assist you in identifying USDA programs that may be of particular interest to small and beginning farmers and ranchers as well as socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers.


For groups of farmers and ranchers, community based organizations, and local governments

These programs fund not for profit organizations, educational institutions and groups of farmers or ranchers.  They do not fund individual farmers or ranchers directly. Included here are programs for not-for-profit corporations that serve farmers and ranchers, and programs that may be useful in developing value-added farm products and or expanding the marketing capacity of farms and ranches in your area.
