Farm and Ranch Project

Legal Aid of Nebraska’s Farm and Ranch Project offers free services to individuals and families throughout rural Nebraska, with a particular (though not exclusive) emphasis on agriculture.
Legal Aid of Nebraska, Interchurch Ministries and the Rural Response Council, with other supporters, maintain the Rural Response Hotline. The Hotline started during the farm crisis in the 1980’s and has remained in existence. It is the longest, continuously running farm hotline in the nation.
