The Americas Area Program at Heifer International was formed in December 2005 after merging the former Latin America/Caribbean and North America Programs.

The Americas Program supports families and communities with a people-centered agricultural model in which the family's production is aimed at improving their nutrition. Our program works to support small-scale farmers, and the interconnections between humankind and nature are based on respect and reciprocity.

The Heifer USA Program has undergone a programmatic shift and currently focuses on food systems in high-need regions of the Arkansas Delta and Appalachia.
