USDA Expands Programs for Farms Transitioning to Organic

$10 million added to 2024 organic farming grant programs.

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that an additional $10 million has been added to programs expanding organic food and products in the United States. This funding will help American farmers and food producers receive the training necessary to transition to organic production and ease the financial burden of obtaining federal organic certification.

“Offsetting the costs for organic transition helps more farmers realize higher margins sooner while giving consumers more access to high-demand organic products,” Secretary Vilsack said. “Together, these resources ensure small and mid-sized producers can gain access to new, profitable markets and further our commitment to maximize American farmers’ share of the food dollar.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For discernment for Secretary Vilsack as he oversees programs supporting the transition of farms from traditional to organic production.
  • For U.S. farmers and producers who are struggling with inflation and regulatory constraints.
