Programs

NIFA programs are the mechanism by which we pursue our mission to invest in and advance agricultural research, education, and extension to solve societal challenges. Some programs administer funding and offer leadership while others focus on national leadership and collaboration. For more information on a particular program, use the site’s search tool.

Farm Safety

NIFA addresses farm safety by supporting Cooperative Extension Service programs that train youth and adult farm workers in safe field practices, equipment use, and equipment maintenance and help farmers with disabilities and their families maintain engagement in production agriculture.
