FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A federal grant is being used to help establish and improve farming opportunities for veterans, officials said.

The $746,567 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will be administered by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and several partners, the state agency said.

Funding will be used to provide education, training and networking, that will prepare veterans for agriculture-related careers.

“Creating more opportunities for our military veterans is vital for the men and women who have served this country,” Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles said. “Being able to combine this endeavor with increasing agriculture pursuits is a great benefit for veterans and Kentucky.”
