The Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) Program at Fermilab will provide a powerful platform for exploring new physics, including addressing long-standing anomalies hinting at eV-scale sterile neutrinos. The program will use a set of liquid argon time projection chambers (LArTPCs) at three different baselines situated in an intense muon neutrino beam. To achieve our physics goals, we are pioneering the LArTPC technology including event reconstruction techniques and detailed modeling of systematic uncertainties. These advances, together with our suite of precision neutrino-argon cross section measurements, will also provide inputs to the DUNE program's search for neutrino CP violation at long baselines. I will present the current status and future prospects of the SBN program, highlight recent results from MicroBooNE, and discuss how these measurements fit into the broader program of neutrino physics with LArTPCs.
