The USDA has a wide range of financial assistance programs, but finding the right one can be difficult and complicated further by trying to stay up to date with the changes in funding following each Farm Bill.  The 86-page guide covers 63 government programs and has been updated to include programs included in the 2014 Farm Bill.  Each listing provides a description of the program's available resources, information on how to apply, and in some cases, examples of how the funding has been used.  Additionally, the guide includes basic information on how to design sound projects, find appropriate programs, and write grant applications.
