Officials say a federal grant is being used to help establish and improve farming opportunities for veterans. 

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

Officials say funding will be used to provide education, training and networking, that will prepare veterans for agriculture-related careers. Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles says the program will benefit veterans and the state.
