BFRDP Stakeholder Input Received 2013 and 2014

The following is a summary of stakeholder input received by the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program on or before July 3, 2014, in response to a widely-circulated invitation to provide input to inform the 2015 cycle of grants. Input was invited in person at the June 24, 2014, meeting of the USDA Advisory Committee on Beginning Farmers and Ranchers, by email to or to program leaders, and via a stakeholder conference call held on June 26, 2014. Also included in the summary are stakeholder comments that were received between the 2012 and 2014 RFAs and which appear to be relevant to the 2015 RFA.
