Empowering Veterans to Thrive in Agriculture

Under Construction.

 

As most veterans are aware there are a variety of benefits that go along with the status of veteran. These benefit programs are administered by a diverse array of state and federal agencies, and probably few veterans are aware of all the programs.

There are also many programs to assist beginning farmers and ranchers. Many of these programs can be used by veterans, perhaps in conjunction with veteran benefits programs.

The intent of this page is to connect veterans and those serving them with the veterans benefits and farming programs as well as provide an explanation for how they can both be used to advance agricultural training and careers.
