Risk Management Education Partnership Grants

The purpose of this competitive cooperative partnership agreement program is to deliver crop insurance education and risk management training to U.S. agricultural producers to assist them in identifying and managing production, marketing, legal, financial, and human risk. The program gives priority to: (1) educating producers of crops currently not insured under Federal crop insurance, specialty crops, and underserved commodities, including livestock and
forage; and (2) providing collaborative partnerships to develop and deliver crop insurance education and other risk management training. Apply by July 10, 2017.

Education activities developed under the Risk
Management Education Partnerships Program will provide U.S. farmers and ranchers, including
limited resource, socially disadvantaged, and other traditionally under-served farmers and
ranchers with training and information opportunities to be able to understand:
i. The kinds of risks addressed by existing and emerging risk management tools;
ii. The features and appropriate use of existing and emerging risk management tools; and
iii. How to make sound risk management decisions.
