Breaking New Ground Resource Center
Purdue University began serving farmers with disabilities in 1979, and the program became known as Breaking New Ground. In 1990, Congress created the AgrAbility Program, and Breaking New Ground received the grant to lead the Indiana AgrAbility Project. Since some people know the program as Breaking New Ground and others as AgrAbility, both names are used.
