Urban Ag Climate-Smart Commodities Farm Initiative

U.S. Department of Agriculture

The Urban Ag Climate Smart Commodities Farm Initiative intends to reach underserved, socially disadvantaged, primarily African American producers and provide financial incentives to Urban Ag Groups and Farmers to encourage participation in the program. This five-state pilot program would work with small and/or underserved producers to increase the supply and demand for Climate-Smart Commodities in rural and urban markets.

The project would assist with purchasing items producers may need to set up climate-smart retail operations. Participants would also receive an UrbanAg Climate-Smart Commodities Marketing Toolkit and access to marketing bootcamps teaching farmers and partnering Urban Ag groups how to market climate-smart commodities to potential consumers.

Participants would complete a survey at the beginning of the program to access their awareness and/or knowledge of Climate-Smart Agriculture, their willingness to adopt the practices and to determine what they might need to be successful.
