Since 1991, AgrAbility of Wisconsin has been promoting success in agriculture for farmers with disabilities and their families.
AgrAbility of Wisconsin has recently secured a three-year grant that started in 2019. This funding is available through the USDA’s Outreach and Assistance for Socially Disadvantaged (SDA) Farmers and Ranchers and Veteran Farmers and Ranchers Program (also known as the 2501 Program). The outreach grant will provide 100 current and new Wisconsin SDA farmers and veteran farmers with an awareness of, increased access to, and participation in USDA programs and services during the three-year project period
To enroll in the AgrAbility program, SDA, or Veteran Farmers and Ranchers program, or to learn more, please get in touch.
Farming– a Hazardous Job
Over 4,000 injuries occur on Wisconsin farms each year, many resulting in permanent disabilities. In the entire United States, agricultural production is one of the most hazardous occupations with the highest disabling injury rate of any industry.
AgrAbility services are available to those individuals and their families who are engaged in farming or farm-related occupations and are coping with the effects of a disability. Services provided at the home or farm are confidential.
