The RURAL-V Grant project funds faculty time, supplies, equipment and everything necessary to offer free webinars, tours, and workshops to producers. This grant of $146,000 was funded by the United States Department of Agriculture Office of Advocacy and Outreach to assist with outreach to those from groups who are historically socially disadvantaged as well as US Military Veterans. Special funding in scholarships and stipends is available for those from targeted groups, however, the project resources and programming remains free for all individuals.
