National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT)

The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) has been promoting sustainable living for more than 40 years. We help people build resilient communities through local and sustainable solutions that reduce poverty, strengthen self-reliance, and protect natural resources. Programs we have developed and manage include ATTRA, the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service; Small-Scale Intensive Farm Training (SIFT); Energy Corps AmeriCorps; Montana FoodCorps; National Energy Assistance Referral (NEAR), and many more.

NCAT’s deep portfolio of sustainable agriculture and energy projects spans every region of the country. The geographic diversity of our work, and trusted expertise of our staff in each of these regions, allow NCAT to provide relevant information, individualized technical assistance, and in-depth resources to support sustainable agriculture and accessible energy solutions nationwide.

Plus, NCAT facilitates meaningful connections among sustainable agriculture producers, renewable energy and energy efficiency experts, innovative thought leaders, researchers, and industry professionals across the United States

Regenerative Agricultural Alliance

The mission of the RAA is to scale up regenerative poultry in the movement to provide a farmer driven model that showcases regenerative agriculture as the transformational shift needed to balance our ecosystems at large. We approach regenerative agriculture through ecosystem management. Just as the regenerative poultry system works with the entire ecosystem of the land to produce abundant food, scaling regenerative poultry takes an ecosystem of businesses to produce regenerative outcomes. That is why collective ecosystem management forms the backbone of what we do.
