About the Specialty Crop Farm Bill Alliance

The Specialty Crop Farm Bill Alliance is a national coalition of more than 200 organizations representing growers of fruits, vegetables, dried fruit, tree nuts, nursery plants and other products. The alliance was established to enhance the competitiveness of specialty crop agriculture and improve the health of Americans by broadening the scope of U.S. agricultural public policy.

About The Bill



Specialty Crop
Block Grants

This multistate program is a much-needed effort focusing on food safety, plant pests and diseases, research and crop-specific projects to benefit specialty crop agriculture. It has had significant positive impacts for the industry.


Specialty Crop Research Initiative

Addressing the critical needs of the specialty crop industry, this program awards competitive grants to support research and extension to help solve challenges of national, regional, and multistate importance.



Nine in ten Americans do not consume fruits and vegetables in the amounts recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA). Structuring Farm Bill nutrition programs to address the underconsumption of DGA recommendations can both support the nutrition needs of Americans and improve market opportunities for specialty crops.
