President Signs Farm Bill
Today, the President signed the Farm Bill, formally enacting the comprehensive legislation that was recently approved by the House and Senate.
The Farm Bill is federal legislation that authorizes funding for a number of programs, including crop insurance and food stamps. Many of the grant programs that we work with at Morrison are also funded through the Farm Bill.
We will be reviewing the Farm Bill to determine funding levels for a number of grant programs, and will keep you posted on any changes.
We already know that funding for the Value-Added Producer Grant program, one of the largest programs we work with, has been authorized through 2018, with mandatory funding increased from $15mm to $50mm.
