Section 1001(b)(4) of the American Rescue Plan Act (P.L. 117-2), which directs the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to make loans and cooperative agreements and provide other assistance to maintain and improve food and agriculture supply chain resiliency. Program provisions are intended to use available funds to purchase healthy nutritious food from local, regional, and socially disadvantaged farmers/producers for distribution targeting underserved communities
AMS believes this emergency clearance request shall be granted since the agency will not be able to reasonably comply with the normal clearance procedures under the PRA because the use of normal clearance procedures is reasonably likely to prevent or disrupt the collection of information that is necessary to administer the LFPA. If the emergency clearance is not granted, it is reasonably likely that implementation of the program will be postponed, subsequently delaying efforts to maintain and improve food and agricultural supply chain resiliency and effectively provide food to underserved communities.
