NATIONAL CENTER FOR APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGY

Working for a sustainable future since 1976

TRUSTED

Since 1976 NCAT has provided relevant information, individualized technical assistance and in-depth resources to support sustainable agriculture and accessible energy solutions.

PRACTICAL

NCAT’s trusted knowledgebase provides scalable solutions to strengthen self-reliance, reduce poverty, and protect natural resources. NCAT is all solutions, not sensation.

CONNECTOR

NCAT facilitates meaningful connections among sustainable agriculture producers, renewable energy experts, innovators, researchers, and industry professionals. Our role as a connector results in valuable networks and lasting change.

“The Armed to Farm program is THE reason I was able to get started in farming. The opportunity to connect with other veterans and support each other’s dreams was life changing. The education and support from NCAT/ATTRA guided me through starting a profitable farm that fuels my newfound passion for farming.” 

“When it comes to energy professionals, NCAT is on speed dial. NCAT helped us every
step of the way in creating an energy efficiency grant program in Montana.”

“NCAT’s Soil for Water program offers a chance to learn new things and to apply it to your land and to improve.”
