A second benefit is that you’ll have the support of our 11 plus years of national agriculture community outreach and networking, our professional experience, our support services and a stellar reputation with various large partnerships. This includes our large USDA partnership, the second largest agency of the United States government. The USDA is a great partner to have!
Being under TIWAEA/NWIAA’s organizational umbrella and having access to its partnership and development relationships enables you to apply for and receive grants and foundation funding; unlike any individual farmer can ever receive on their own. This will help your Chapter to literally help save lives, through growing healthy foods, growing incomes, and helping create sustainable businesses.
You will be connected to a sisterhood/ brotherhood of business agriculture women/men that advocate for equal rights as for women/men and at-risk-youth. As a Chairwoman in your state you will be a partner with the NWIAA/TIWAEA’s historical movement to bring equal opportunities to grow and market fresh food in underserved communities for ALL people!
