NIFA Invests $2.5M to Support Military Veteran Agriculture Training Programs

The Enhancing Agricultural Opportunities for Military Veterans (AgVets) program encourages the development of training opportunities specifically designed for military veterans. AgVets projects will offer onsite, hands-on training and classroom education leading to a comprehensive understanding of successful farm and ranch operations and management practices. Projects may also offer workforce readiness and employment prospects for service-disabled veterans. Ensuring there are pathways for military veterans interested in pursuing careers in agriculture — regardless of age or production choice — strengthens agricultural production and rural economies across the United States. This year 4 projects were awarded.
