POLICY & GOVERNMENT RELATIONS
Starting with the development of the 1990 Farm Bill through the most current Farm Bill, the IAC has been one of the most stalwart voices working towards solutions on issues facing tribal governments and tribal producers in food and agriculture production.
The IAC’s policy and advocacy work is unique. It is guided by IAC’s direct work with tribal producers and tribal governments through our program areas and technical assistance network. As a longtime leader in Tribal agriculture, the IAC is regularly represented in Washington, D.C. in larger policy discussions around agriculture and Indian Country, as well as through our work as a co-steward of the Native Farm Bill Coalition. The IAC is committed to Indian Country’s food producers and advancing solution-oriented policies at the federal level through education and advocacy.

“The Markup” is IAC’s policy brief update to keep Indian Country in the loop on what is going on in the Washington, D.C. beltway. A “markup” is when a congressional committee meets to offer changes, amendments, and to debate legislation, and we hope the information provided in the IAC Markup policy brief will provide the same opportunity for knowledge sharing and involvement in the process.
