Outreach to Underserved Communities

 
California Outreach Graphic
 

NRCS is committed to ensuring that its programs and services are accessible to all our customers, fairly and equitably, with emphasis on reaching the underserved and socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers, and tribes of our state.

The California Outreach Team is a group of specialists in communication, planning and resource identification, dedicated to this commitment. The California Outreach Team designs and implements specific outreach activities that allow full participation of traditionally underserved individuals and groups. InsideOUTREACH is our newsletter focusing on who we are and what we are doing to engage everyone in the resource conservation mission.
