NFFC Commends Senator Gillibrand Support for Small/Underserved Farmer Support

NFFCPress Room

NFFC member and Land Loss Prevent Project director Savi Horne: “Requests from Senator Gillibrand to USDA for information on the number of farm foreclosures, loan defaults, and the amount of debt held by small-scale and historically underserved producers under USDA’s jurisdiction since March 1, 2020, will help illustrate the disparity these farmers have faced before and during the financial stresses of COVID-19 and their ability to repay their loans while experiencing months of significant market disruptions.”
