Policy is implemented by public agencies like state departments of agriculture, the US Department of Agriculture, and local counties or municipalities. Often the details of a program are decided by the agency in a process called rulemaking. These rules are just as important as the legislation when it comes to determining how a program will work. By working directly with these public agencies, you can have a major impact on how ag programs are run and who has access to them. This training will cover the ins and outs of working with public agencies on policy implementation and rulemaking.
