Listening Session: 2018 Farm Bill implementation
On Tuesday, February 26, 2019 the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has scheduled a listening session regarding implementation of the 2018 Farm Bill.
The Native Farm Bill Coalition encourages tribal leaders to either attend this listening session or submit comments online. For more information, visit
Most importantly, we believe that the USDA must commit to do in-person, regional government-to-government tribal consultations and allow for USDA agencies and state-level officials to host meetings and listening sessions to ensure full engagement of Indian Country during Farm Bill implementation.
Please note that for those interested in attending the listening session in person, you must register by
tomorrow, February 22. Written comments will be accepted through March 1
