The purpose of this competitive program is to deliver crop insurance education and risk management training to U.S. agricultural producers to assist them in identifying and managing production, marketing, legal, financial, and human risk. The program gives priority to: (1) educating producers of crops currently not insured under Federal crop insurance, specialty crops, and underserved commodities, including livestock and forage; and (2) providing collaborative partnerships to develop and deliver crop insurance education and other risk management training. Education activities developed under the Risk Management Education Partnership Program will provide U.S. farmers and ranchers, including limited resource and other traditionally under-served farmers and ranchers with training and information opportunities to be able to understand: i. The kinds of risks addressed by existing and emerging risk management tools; ii. The features and appropriate use of existing and emerging risk management tools; and iii. How to make sound risk management decisions.
