InterTribal Technical Assistance Network

Through a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Department of Agriculture Office of Tribal Relations and the Intertribal Agriculture Council, the Intertribal Technical Assistance Network (ITAN) was established to increase access and use of USDA programs and services by Indian producers and Tribes.

ITAN supports USDA in delivering programs and services through technical assistance and outreach to farmers and ranchers with a focus on providing local and traditional foods to American Indian/Alaskan Native tribal members and improving the market access both domestically and around the world for tribally produced foods.

The Network supports farmers and ranchers across the United States, potentially benefitting over 55 million acres of reservation lands and the communities located on those lands:
