Approximately $2.5 million is available for community outreach projects that will provide information and training. There's about $5 million available for crop insurance education in 16 targeted states. And just over a million dollars is available for the commodity partnership small sessions program. The application deadlines for these different areas do vary, but information is available at www.rma.usda.gov.
