This guide is written for anyone seeking
help from federal programs to foster innovative enterprises in agriculture
and forestry in the United States. Specifically, the guide addresses
program resources in community development; sustainable land management;
and value-added and diversified agriculture and forestry. Thus,
it can help farmers, entrepreneurs, community developers, conservationists,
and many other individuals, as well as private and public organizations,
both for-profit and not-for-profit.
The guide can also help USDA and other agency employees become
aware and take better advantage of the enormous array of federal
programs and resources available to their clients in supporting
agricultural and forestry innovations. This edition constitutes
the guide's fifth printing and third complete update, incorporating
programs from the 2008 Farm Bill.
