The Colorado AgrAbility Project (CAP) is a partnership between Colorado State University Office of Engagement & Extension and Goodwill of Colorado. The program is funded in part by a grant from the U.S Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA), with additional support from the Behavioral Health Recovery Act, Senate Bill 21-1327 to provide information, education, and services to farmers, ranchers, agricultural workers and their families with disabilities, illnesses, or behavioral health needs. This unique collaboration promotes independence in production agriculture by helping workers find the help they need to begin, remain, or regain employment on their farm or ranch. 

We hope to see you there!
