USDA Agricultural Mediation Program makes grants to
state entities to provide alternative
dispute resolution through mediation to agricultural
producers, their lenders, and others directly
affected by the actions of certain USDA agencies.
An impartial mediator helps participants review and discuss their conflicts, identify options to resolve disputes, and agree on solutions. Ideally, this process helps avoid expensive and time-consuming administrative appeals and/or litigation thus reducing the effects of financial stress on producers.
