The National Young Farmers Coalition (Young Farmers / the Coalition) is in search of a Phone Banker and Technical Assistant to make calls to potential USDA 22007 Discrimination Financial Assistance Program applicants, and to assist applicants in applying or connecting with other cooperators and with local support offices as appropriate.
This USDA program is a one-time and time bound resource, and thus quick and efficient execution of requested services will be essential. The 22007 program is designed for eligible farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners who experienced discrimination in USDA farm lending programs prior to January 2021. The National Young Farmers Coalition is one of eight (8) cooperators working together and with USDA on the program’s implementation. Our role as an organization is to facilitate awareness and understanding of the Discrimination Financial Assistance Program among producers in our network, and to ensure producers have access to resources and technical assistance services to ensure completion of application, as appropriate.
