With the Farm Bill set to be renewed or extended in 2024, United Philanthropy Forum and our public policy partners, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC), are convening a briefing to support PSO advocacy efforts seeking to inform the reauthorization process.

Register today for The Farm Bill & 2024 Election Year: PSO Advocacy Update.

Given its impact on nutrition and conservation, the Farm Bill has significant health and environmental equity implications for local communities that philanthropy works with and in. The 2018 Farm Bill was extended last November and Congress now has until September 30, 2024, to pass a full five-year bill.

The Farm Bill & 2024 Election Year briefing will feature:

  • Ways that PSOs can collaborate with their foundation members and community partners to uplift key equity concerns for lawmakers and their staff.
  • Essential insights into the status of negotiations on Capitol Hill and the current state of play during this election year and historically unproductive Congress.
  • Expert policy recommendations to ensure that the text and implementation of the Farm Bill reflect the needs of the charitable sector and communities across the country.

The Forum invites PSOs and their foundation networks to register today to take advantage of the opportunity to connect with sector peers and support strategic advocacy efforts impacting the most significant piece of legislation Congress enacts that has a direct impact on farming livelihoods, how food is produced, what kinds of foods are grown, and how economically distressed families eat.
