#TakeActionTuesday: Ask your Representative to support Organic Agriculture

Many important organic programs are funded through annual spending legislation, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) National Organic Program, research programs, and organic data collection. Congress is currently working on appropriations legislation for Fiscal Year 2022. House Organic Caucus leaders have drafted a letter to request funding for organic programs.

We need your help to secure a boost in funding for the National Organic Program and other programs to strengthen organic enforcement, crack down on fraud, boost organic research, and expand organic data collection. The House Organic Caucus is also requesting funding to fix the organic certification cost share program shortfall – funding for this program was slashed in 2020.

Ask your representative to sign the letter requesting funding for organic. Please click here to use our tool to easily send your representatives an email (use as is or edit as you see fit).

The deadline for representatives to sign the House Organic Caucus letter is April 15.

Thanks to the National Organic Coalition for their leadership on this issue!
