Relief Bill Is Most Significant Legislation for Black Farmers Since Civil Rights Act, Experts Say

"A little-known element of President Biden’s massive stimulus relief package passed by the Senate on Saturday will pay billions of dollars to disadvantaged farmers — a provision that will benefit Black farmers in a way that some experts say no legislation has since the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Of the $10.4 billion in the American Rescue Plan that will support agriculture, approximately half will go to disadvantaged farmers, according to estimates from the Farm Bureau, an industry organization. About a quarter of disadvantaged farmers are Black. The money will provide debt relief as well as grants, training, education and other forms of assistance aimed at acquiring land."

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2021/03/08/reparations-black-farmers-stimulus/

The Senate-passed stimulus bill aims to compensate Black farmers for systemic racism.
