CDFA Hosting Farm Bill Listening Sessions

  • Jul 21, 2022

The California Department of Food and Agriculture is hosting several in-person and virtual listening sessions to gather input from agricultural stakeholders concerning the 2023 Farm Bill. Attendees will have the opportunity to provide input concerning California’s agricultural priorities as they pertain to the Farm Bill. The comments will be used to develop recommendations that will be shared with California’s Congressional delegation and the leadership of the Senate and House agricultural committees. Public comments also can be emailed to FarmBill@cdfa.ca.gov.

The Farm Bill provides nationwide federal funding to support a variety of food and agricultural programs including crop insurance, conservation, nutrition and trade. It also promotes environmentally sound farming practices.
