Capital Access: Creating a Continuum of Financial Services for Alternative Agriculture in NC

Year Funded




The Capital Access project is a continuation and enhancement of the previous financial needs survey of farmers. This project will provide further outreach to farmers and lenders and advocate for reforms in lending policies and programs to better serve farm enterprises. The project?s goal is to survey tobacco farmers to determine their banking needs and then educate bankers on the benefits of providing loans to assist tobacco farmers with their diversification initiatives.
