  • Enhance career development and advancement of Asian Pacific American employees in NRCS and improve under-representation of Asian Pacific Americans.
  • Encourage awareness of the impact of Asian and Pacific Islander cultures and contributions.
  • Market natural resource conservation programs to the Asian Pacific American communities
