USDA Appoints New Advisory Committee Members for Minority Farmers

The 15 members have been appointed to serve a two-year term.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) appointed 15 new members to their Advisory Committee on Minority Farmers, a group of experts dedicated to informing agency policies to support the under-resourced demographic. University professors, civil rights experts, and nonprofit leaders have been selected to help the USDA provide equal access to their programs.

“Minority farmers face unique challenges in accessing the land, credit, and training they need to succeed,” said Secretary Tom Vilsack. “This committee is part of USDA’s commitment to ensure that all farmers have equal access to USDA programs and services, especially minority farmers and producers in underserved communities.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Vilsack to be guided by God as he oversees the committee to help minority farmers.
  • For members of the committee to be discerning in their recommendations.
  • For USDA officials as they facilitate federal programs for farmers and producers.
  • For American farmers and ranchers as they work to produce food for the nation.
