WASHINGTON, D.C. – On April 20, the Sustainable Food Policy Alliance (SFPA) joined allied organizations in urging Congress to fully fund the Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network (FRSAN) for Fiscal Year 2022. In a letter to Congressional leaders, the groups highlighted funding of the FRSAN regional centers as essential to the continued development of their networks and programming to serve populations where the need is great, and resources are often limited. The letter also notes that the need for FRSAN funding is greater than ever given the immense stress caused by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
