The Colorado AgrAbility Project

Serving the Needs of Colorado's Farm and Ranch Families With Disabilities

The Colorado AgrAbility Project (CAP) is a partnership between Colorado State University Extension and Goodwill Industries 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) to provide information, education, and services to farmers, ranchers, agricultural workers and their families with disabilities, illnesses, or conditions. 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.

Thanks to the Colorado AgrAbility project, Colorado farmers and ranchers engaged in production agriculture are able to continue working, despite a long term illness, permanent injury, aging issues or other physical challenges.

Supportive Services Include:

No-cost on-the-farm or ranch visits to help make your home, shop, farm or ranch more accessible

Recommendations for farm equipment adaptation, home modifications, and adaptive equipment

Educational workshops facilitated by CSU Extension for farmers, ranchers and family members with disabilities and the professionals who work with them
