USDA Working to Strengthen US Food Supply Chain Issues with $200 Millon

Exciting and much needed good news for the agriculture industry was announced on May 26th. The USDA will be investing $200 million in order to strengthen the food supply chain and provide more opportunities for small businesses. 

It’s encouraging how the USDA is committed to strengthening the American food supply chain and creating opportunities for small businesses especially in rural communities. This aid comes at a particularly crucial time as the country moves toward recovery after the Covid-19 pandemic.  This $200 million opportunity was made available as one way that they are transforming America’s meat and poultry industry through more equitable, diverse infrastructure proposals.

“USDA is committed to making investments that promote competition—helping support economic systems where the wealth created in rural areas stays in rural areas—and strengthening rules and enforcement against anticompetitive practice”, says Secretary Tom Vilsack.
