The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) offers a variety of programs that Tribes, Tribal Leaders, and Tribal Citizens are using. From local food programs to housing opportunities to business, infrastructure, and conservation, USDA offers programs to cover the needs of rural America, including Indian Country.
This roundtable offers tribal leaders and other stakeholders the opportunity to engage with the USDA to share priorities, ask questions and receive technical assistance on a variety of programs that support construction, infrastructure, home ownership, food sovereignty, farmers markets, and more. Bring your priorities, and learn how USDA can help make them a reality!
