The Michigan State Outreach Council
The Michigan State Outreach Council (the Council) was formed in 1998 to gather information about the program and outreach needs of different customer groups, especially under-served groups including women, minorities, and limited resource clients. The Council works to provide coordinated outreach efforts to all USDA customers in Michigan, especially those that have historically been under served within the State. The Council is required to have at least four public meetings each year.
The Michigan State Outreach Council is comprised of individuals from churches, private organizations, universities, congressional and legislative staffs, as well as representatives from USDA agencies, state government, tribal governments, and local governments.
All customers (especially those that have historically been under served within the State) are served in a manner that facilitates their understanding of USDA programs and enables them to benefit, as appropriate, from such programs.
To develop and coordinate the outreach efforts to historically under served customers of USDA programs within Michigan.
