The U.S. Department of Agriculture has created a special advisory board to ensure that Native Americans benefit from USDA programs. The Council for Native American Farming and Ranching will help native governments, businesses and farmers partner with the USDA to create jobs and strengthen the communities.

The Council will work closely with the Office of Tribal Relations, Farm Service Agency and other USDA agencies to help Native farmers profit from their business.

Agriculture is the second largest employer in Indian Country.
