The purpose of this program is to ensure that USDA programs are administered in a way that enables small or limited resource farmers to maintain and develop economic viability in farm operations, to ensure USDA financial and technical assistance programs and activities reach small and limited resource farmers and ranchers, and to ensure technical practices and information are relevant to the needs of these farmers and ranchers.
