Congress Passes Farm Bill with Broad Bipartisan Support
Posted December 13, 2018

With wide bipartisan support, Congress passed The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the Farm Bill), which reauthorizes and expands the national Healthy Food Financing Initiative (HFFI) at the United States Department of Agriculture. In addition to providing healthy food for families, the bipartisan bill supports farmers and agricultural economy, invests in small towns and rural communities and supports local food economies.

The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 is a multi-year bill that legislates policies and authorizes programs for food and nutrition aid, agriculture, trade, and marketing programs, rural development assistance, and other programs. The HFFI program is a key strategy within the Farm Bill’s multi-faceted approach to improve the food environment and advance community well-being. HFFI, along with other measures, will diversify the nation’s agricultural economy, invest in land and water conservation, create new opportunities in small towns and rural communities, and protect food access for families. In authorizing the new bill, Congress also affirmed the importance of supporting healthy food access for nearly 40 million low-income Americans, regardless of work status.

Early Learning Supply & Demand in the District of Columbia
Published 2018

A new analysis commissioned by the Bainum Family Foundation and conducted by Reinvestment Fund provides the first comprehensive look at what the District of Columbia has, and what it lacks, in terms of early learning capacity and quality — and which parts of the community are most affected by existing gaps.

This information — especially when considered with other local data, such as Early Development Instrument (EDI) outcomes for District children — is designed to help policymakers, funders, providers and advocates make data-informed decisions about where resources and interventions are needed most. It also can help parents understand local early learning options and make the best decisions for their families.
