AgrAbility Case Coordinator Position

POSITION TITLE: AgrAbility Case Coordinator and Project Assistant


DESCRIPTION: The Florida AgrAbility Program (FAP) is a collaborative project between the University of Florida (UF) and the Center for Independent Living of North Central Florida (CILNCF). The AgrAbility Case Coordinator (ACC) works within the FAP and will support farmers and agricultural workers with disabilities who are engaged in farming and the agricultural fields. The ACC will conduct home and worksite assessments and identify ways people with disabilities can continue farming safely and successfully by: providing Assistive Technologies (AT); modifying equipment and work sites; restructuring farm tasks; and identifying resources and services that can aid their independence. The ACC will provide outreach and networking activities throughout the state of Florida’s farming and agricultural community to raise awareness about the FAP and to identify people eligible to receive support from the FAP. The ACC will also provide service coordination between state and local government organizations, agricultural businesses, UF Extension, community-based organizations, and health care providers.
