Increasing Land, Capital, and Market Access Program

Farm Service Agency

Closed Indefinitely

Our sources indicate that this program is closed indefinitely and unlikely to reopen.

USDA launched the Increasing Land, Capital, and Market Access (Increasing Land Access) Program to help underserved producers by increasing land, capital, and market access. The program will fund cooperative agreements or grants for projects that help move underserved producers from surviving to thriving.

Land access is critical to the success of agriculture. Underserved producers have not received the amount of specialized technical support that would benefit the launch, growth, resilience, and success of their agricultural enterprises. The Increasing Land Access Program is intended to address this problem by increasing access to farm ownership opportunities, increasing access and improving results for those with heirs’ property or fractionated land, increasing access to markets and capital that affect the ability to access land, and increasing land ownership, land succession, and agricultural business planning.


Funding is available to various government entities from local to tribal, not-for-profit educational institutions, and non-profit organizations. The non-profit organizations can include Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), foundations, and Tribal financial institutions with a 501c3 status. Due to the unique nature of land access among Tribal communities, Tribal projects may be in all scopes.

Individuals, non-domestic entities, and private, for-profit organizations are not eligible to apply to this funding opportunity.


There is no cost sharing or matching requirement and there is no competitive advantage to applicants that provide a match.
