Oklahoma AgrAbility

Shaping futures through Oklahoma tradition


The Oklahoma AgrAbility Project, established in 2002, supports the rehabilitation and assistive technology needs of Oklahoma farmers, ranchers and their families who have been impacted by disabilities and face barriers to continuing participation in agriculture.

Oklahoma AgrAbility fills a gap in services and resources available to these rural families by providing education, networking and direct assistance to create awareness of state and local services and modifications for farms, homes, equipment and work sites.

The Project also maintains working relationships with the Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services and other state AgrAbility projects to sustain educational programs for health care providers.  Additional contacts with service providers, member organizations and state agencies are established and sustained through the Oklahoma AgrAbility Advisory Council.

Oklahoma AgrAbility is one of about 25 state AgriAbility Projects funded by the Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service, which also supports the National AgrAbility Project.  The National Project was created in the 1990 Farm Bill and provides state Projects with training, technical assistance and information about available resources to help people with disabilities employed in agriculture.
