2501 Participant Support for 2024 Farm Tours

Mileage reimbursement is available to those who intend to attend an OEFFA farm tour and who identify as Black, Indigenous, or Persons of Color.

Participant support is provided by the USDA’s 2501 Program.


The maximum number of support miles is 150 miles per submission. Please submit one reimbursement request per address/household/family/group and up to two submissions in the 2024 farm tour season. 


Before the Farm Tour
  • Participants must complete the support request a minimum of seven days before the day of the scheduled tour. 
  • Once the request is submitted, approval of the participant support request will be sent no later than three days before the scheduled farm tour. Reach out to erica@oeffa.org with any questions. 
At the Farm Tour
  • Participants must sign in with an OEFFA staff member using a device provided by OEFFA.
After the Farm Tour
  • This follow-up step will NOT be prompted by OEFFA staff correspondence. It is important to understand that this step is solely the participant’s responsibility.
  • Participants must submit a screenshot (Google map, for example) image of their roundtrip mileage to erica@oeffa.org within 72 hours (3 days) of the completion of the farm tour. Any submissions after this will not be accepted, voiding the application approval process.
  • Allow 4-6 weeks for processing of participant support (check or direct deposit).
