With COVID-19 impacting communities and economies worldwide, Native farmers and ranchers are also feeling these effects. Join Oweesta for a panel discussion highlighting USDA resources that can be used to support Native farmers and ranchers during this difficult time. Lanalle Smith from Oweesta Corporation will facilitate a panel discussion with staff from across USDA. Panelists will discuss how to support Native farmers, ranchers, and Tribal communities with a range of programmatic options. These will include a discussion of capital options for Native lenders working with farmers and ranchers. We will also discuss networks for supportive technical assistance and agencywide emergency and disaster resources. Finally, USDA will share agency strategies for supporting Native agriculture beyond the pandemic. Please come with your questions for USDA experts who will also be on call to answer your questions.
