The vision of AgrAbility is to enhance quality of life for farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural workers with disabilities, so that they, their families, and their communities continue to succeed in rural America. For this target audience, "success" may be defined by many parameters, including: gainful employment in production agriculture or a related occupation; access to appropriate assistive technology needed for work and daily living activities; evidence-based information related to the treatment and rehabilitation of disabling conditions; and targeted support for family caregivers of AgrAbility customers.

NCAT/Armed to Farm:
Armed to Farm is a sustainable agriculture training program for military veterans. The National Center for Appropriate Technology, a national nonprofit organization based in Butte, Montana, developed Armed to Farm through a cooperative agreement with USDA-Rural Development.
Since launching in 2013, Armed to Farm has supported more than 1,000 veterans from 47 states with hands-on and classroom learning opportunities. Farmer veterans learn how to make a business plan and market their products, how to access USDA programs, set business goals, and develop mentorships with seasoned farmers.
Established in 2021, WWOOF-USA awards Future Farmers Grants annually to WWOOFers committed to going into farming as a career. These grants are intended to assist individuals who may have faced barriers to entry in farming and who are committed to diversity and inclusion in the field of agriculture. The grant is intended to help fund WWOOFing plans in the USA in preparation for future farming.
