The long-running class-action lawsuit over discrimination by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) against American Indian ranchers and farmers was recently settled. It resulted in programmatic reform at USDA, along with cash settlement and loan forgiveness for successful claimants. The settlement also established the Native American Agriculture Fund (NAAF). The Fund is tasked by the Settlement to support and develop American Indian agriculture by providing for: business assistance, agricultural education, technical support and advocacy services. NAAF is the largest philanthropic organization in the US solely dedicated to serving the American Indian agriculture community.
