Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA)

The goals of the DEIA Team work are to enhance research and investment in communities to ensure diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility; help reduce barriers to access and advance opportunities for underserved communities; and clarify how NIFA collects and uses data to continually improve its services.

These goals stem from the creation and development of a concept paper on racial equity and the following executive orders: 1) Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government, and 2) Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility Through the Federal Government. The DEIA team created overarching goals and activities to address while working in conjunction with other initiatives addressing the priorities of The Biden Administration and USDA.
