NAWG’s strength comes from the grassroots – wheat growers across the country who research issues, set policy and educate policy makers in Washington, D.C., about how these issues affect our nation’s wheat farms.

All the work NAWG does is in conjunction with its 20 affiliated state associations. Though these state associations themselves vary in size, composition and resources, leaders from all affiliates come together to create a strong national organization.

How We Make Policy

NAWG’s policy comes up from the countryside through county committees, which send policy ideas and resolutions to state associations, which set their policy and bring priorities to the national association. Farmers who step up to represent their state associations on NAWG’s Board of Directors serve as the crucial link between individual wheat growers, the state organizations and the national organization in Washington, D.C.


NAWG’s resolutions give direction to the NAWG officers on critical policy issues affecting wheat growers across the country. These resolutions, approved by NAWG policy committees and the NAWG Board of Directors, are the official policies of the organization.

NAWG Indirect Cost Policy

The National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) projects are funded through membership dues and partner contributions. NAWG allows indirect costs of no more than 10% on projects.
