NACD Letter to Senate Agriculture Committee Leadership on Farm Bill

NACD President Brent Van Dyke wrote on June 12, 2018 to Senate Agriculture Committee leaders about the Farm Bill. Van Dyke expressed NACD’s support for the work and time spent by the committee and for supporting conservation programs.

NACD expressed concern with funding for the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). “Moving 30 percent of program funds into a direct grant program to private partners erodes the current conservation delivery system…Additionally, reapportioning the funding pools by eliminating the national pool and funneling 60 percent of program funds to the Critical Conservation Areas (CCA) limits access to the program.”
