Back to Ag Program

Getting famers back to what they love – farming

The Back to Ag Program is a funding project focused on supporting the cost of adaptive technology for farmers that have experienced a traumatic injury. The Back to Ag Program is funded by FCC and delivered in partnership with CASA and the Rick Hanson Foundation.

CASA is now accepting applications year-round for the Back to Ag program. Applicants must be farmers who have experienced a life-altering incident resulting in a disability. They must demonstrate that the purchase of specialized equipment or adaptation of existing equipment will help them get back to work on the farm safely.
