RAPP provides opportunities for improving the livelihoods of refugee families in agriculture and food sector business through partnerships with federal, state and local, and public and private organizations that cooperate in the coordination and utilization of resources focused on sustainable income and community food security. The focus of the RAPP in Kentucky is to introduce local refugee communities to the established agricultural and farming communities. This partnership will enable for refugees with backgrounds in farming to have increased access to fresh, locally grown healthy foods. This partnership will also provide locally grown produce to the Louisville immigrant and refugee population and the community as a whole. This program began October 2007.
