Family farm organizations in Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri and South Dakota are calling for strong oversight of the recently passed COVID-19 aid package to ensure the USDA disburses aid to people and rural communities.

In the letter, the Campaign for Family Farms and the Environment urged Congress to set up guardrails for USDA regarding a total of $24 billion in aid designed to support farmers hurt by the enormous disruption in markets and supply chains caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
