Partnership Gathering Information from Native American Veterans Working in Agriculture
Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC) and the Native American Agriculture Fund (NAAF) are working together to gather critical input from Native American U.S. military veterans working in the agricultural industry. They have an online survey open through March 7, 2022. The questionnaire aims to understand how Native veterans are involved in food production and agriculture; the financial, business, and technical needs of Native veterans and Native food entrepreneurs; and how to connect Native veteran farmers, ranchers, fishers, and growers more seamlessly with NAAF grantees to realize the vision and mission of NAAF. American Indian or Alaska Natives who are veterans or currently serving members of the U.S. Armed Forces are eligible to complete the survey. The first 200 Native farmer veterans to complete the survey will receive a limited edition co-branded FVC/NAAF challenge coin.
