House Agriculture Committee Releases Fact Sheet on Build Back Better Act Provisions

Thu, 04 Nov 2021 09:25:02 CDT

House Agriculture Committee Releases Fact Sheet on Build Back Better Act Provisions The House Agriculture Committee today released the following fact sheet on the agriculture and forestry provisions included in the Build Back Better Act.

The agricultural provisions in the Build Back Better plan include billions of dollars for critical investments in agriculture and our rural communities. Included in this package are multiple bipartisan proposals that House Agriculture Committee Members have fought to include. These timely investments will provide resources to mitigate climate change, improve quality of life in rural communities, and commit millions of dollars to agricultural education across the country.

Strategic investments include:

$2 billion in investments in agricultural research and infrastructure; other countries like China are outspending the US on research investments and this money will help close the gap.

$18 billion in rural job-promoting investments to ensure those living in rural America, on tribal lands, and our insular areas have access to clean water and reliable and efficient renewable energy. This funding will also support investment in renewable biofuels infrastructure important to farmers and our fight against climate change, and flexible funding for rural community growth.

$27.15 billion in investments in forestry programs to help combat forest fires and contribute to healthy, resilient forests.

$12 billion in critical debt relief for farmers in need and for USDA to tailor its programs to support new and existing farmers through outreach, education, and technical assistance. This is offset by $6 billion in funding that was included in the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

$28.29 billion in historic investments in vital conservation programs and support for farmers and producers.
