About This Toolkit

With the Farm Bill reauthorization on the horizon, the Alliance is leading the charge to ensure land trust community needs are top of mind for policymakers. With input from members like you — practitioners who utilize these programs to help landowners — and coalition partners, we developed policy recommendations that call for strengthening Farm Bill programs to meet the unprecedented conservation goals of today.

The Farm Bill Toolkit is your one-stop shop for Alliance resources and tools to advocate for sound Farm Bill policies that help you support landowners in conserving the farmland, ranchland, forestland and wetlands that are critical to providing a healthy future for all people.

The toolkit includes information on Farm Bill programs, Senate and House committees, our Farm Bill factsheet, plus recommendations and sample materials to help you take action today. You’ll also find information on our Farm Bill Working Group, comprised of land trust staff and leaders who provide on-the-ground insights on program implementation and support the Alliance in developing strong Farm Bill policy recommendations.
