Partnership and Cooperative Agreements
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Risk Management Agency (RMA) works with private partners to assist producers, especially limited resource, socially disadvantaged and other traditionally under-served farmers and ranchers, in effectively managing long-term risks and challenges. Over the past 10 years, RMA has awarded $124 million for such partnership agreements involving risk management education and training programs.
Through these partnerships, producers will receive assistance in understanding and using crop insurance programs and other tools so they can make the best risk management decisions for their agricultural operations. Past award recipients have included universities, county cooperative extension offices and non-profit organizations.
