The Intertribal Agriculture Council (IAC) has been working to advocate for expanded support to Tribal agricultural producers and communities struggling with the COVID crisis, as well as longer-term support to strengthen resiliency. These efforts are an extension of IAC’s leadership in the Native Farm Bill Coalition whose advocacy led to a record number of Tribal provisions in the 2018 Farm Bill.
Your involvement in taking a short survey can help support these efforts because the gathered information is being used to identify areas of need and support strategy development. There are four short surveys (producer, Tribal leader, food retailer/distributor, and American Indian Foods Program participants), so please take the relevant survey(s)
