The Michigan AgrAbility Program assists agricultural workers who have physical and mental disabilities, including such disabilities as amputation, arthritis, spinal cord injury, and hearing impairments.

Established in 1992 by MSU Extension's Farm Safety Program, the Michigan AgrAbility Program is now under the direction of the Easter Seals Society of Michigan, Inc.
