The project contributed to the profitability and sustainability of 207 Navajo ranchers and farmers through their participation in rangeland management and monitoring workshops/field demonstrations held at eight Chapter Houses in the Navajo BIA Eastern Agency and Dine' College. The project also directly assisted 203 ranchers and farmers complete Navajo BIA Eastern Agency conservation plans. A current conservation plan is a BIA requirement for the issuance or re-issuance of a land use (grazing/farming) permit. A valid land use permit is a requirement for applying for financial and technical assistance under many USDA NRCS, FSA and RD programs than can help ranchers/farmers make improvements to their rangeland and farm land. A valid land use permit is also requirement to access many Navajo Nation programs and resources.
